CBAPTER' I

CIVILIZATION

Cities may'burn, floods may destroy, pestilences may kill,'and wars may ravage, yet a. word may survive: the d~ecrees of judges, edic ts of emperiors, bul.Ls of popes, may not be sufficient to remove a-wor-d from the speech of a people •. So longa.speople live in houses there will be the word for ho us e :, should a.LL. at one time forsake the houses and dwell in caves, the word house might possibly cease to exist.

For some unknown reason there exists within the midst of our languages a very significant word, the meaning of which has been

lost for: many generations.' And like .t.ne prospector who unknowingly tramples:over 'valuable ore, we have used this word over and over with out real,izing the scope and depth 'of its meaning. .This < is the word 111i or Tllium, the name of Troy, and the name of one of the 'oldest epics in the world. From it is derived the word civilization for

the 111i were the city builders and the Il1i who lived in cities

were the civilli~ ·The word capitol originally means the head 111i from the chief hill in Rome which was originally possessed by the 111i. .:

The original home of the 111i was the islands or the land of

the Illi. The names of many,islandstoday still bear the 111i name: for example ,the Skilly islands near England; Heiligoland near Germany; Ille near France; Illiun in' the Aegean; Elephantine in the Nile;. Laa.l.and, near Denmark; and soon. Appar-en t.Ly -Ehouaands of Islands'j:were used by the Illibefore the time or civilij:.ati"on; b;efore the' time of Troy; even before. the time of any wti tt~,n;hi~tory.. Knowing navigation the Illi saf.Led the seas, the oc eans ; and ~t.Q.e. rivers. Up the'riverstheY.went for trade, and later to settle in the high plac es, whenc e we get the word hill ~ Thus there were two homes for theIlli,the islands ~nd the hills. Mountains were even called Cordirilla, or the ropes of the Illi.

Upon the' hill the 111i built a cas t).e , a castelle, or a citadel, which literally means a house of the 111i. Up the high mountains in Spain the whole country was called Casttlle. The word "cassal! for house comes from a very great tribe of the 111i who originally lived in the Cassiterides near England ..

The natives who contacted the Illi upon the hills called them the Nobilli or the high Illi for tlnob" means high. A general all embracing term was the Gentilli or the race of Illi for Itgenslt means race. Genesis speaks of the Gentiles and the Isles of the"Gentiles. The British carry both terms in their words nobility and gentility, the gentility ranking a little below the nobility, yet far ahead of the people in the slums.

THIRTYTHOUSAND GODS BEFORE JEHOVlffi

Now the nobility termed themselves the Elite or the refined.

They took possession of the favorable tracts of land in Europe, Asia, and Africa, by decree or self inspired divine sanction, similar to that used by the Pope in dispossessing the American In.dians when he gave away half of the continent at one time. The movements of the 111i were always from some island to the continent by way of a river .. Examples of the same would be from Crete up the Nile to the island of Elephantine and thence to conquer Egypt; or from Illes, home of Charles Lindberg,off the coast of France to Ille at the center of Paris and from there to conguer France; or from Religoland off the coast _D.f Germany up theEl (be) ,ri ver to upper Germany; or from the small island of Ely in the Indian ocean up the Euphrates to the site of Babyloll to conCJ.uer Elam.. Rome on the Tiber river was so founded ..

Such a name as Reidelburg, a Teutonic city of learning, means' literally the burg of the high 111i. Rimel was the home of the El, it may have been a castle or it may have been an ,island.. The Scan .. danavians and the English called the'castles the Halla and Valhalla was to them a sacred 'place. The French and Roman word pavillion stood-for a home or tent of the 111i .. The Irish word for house was bally, and ai1aille w8!s"the high house; while the American Az t ex word for house was theXacalle, whence we get our word. shack.

- Considerable complications set in as the Elite Nobili ty moved into the high places. Those who were against them were termed exiles, and those who were for .them were called a Ll i e s., Walls or mur-ad Lr es were built for protection and those outside were beyond the~~le, for the wall often was also picketed with a fence. War was termed bataille the bats of the Tl.Lf., Large implements of war were termed the artillary of the art'of-the-Tll1. Large observation towers were built,as in Ireland, Bell towers called Campanille or the bell of the ll1i, summoned all within hk3arihg·to· the vassalage of the lIlie

The Ells-bells predated the>Christian'era by .many centuries. The word "lord" was originallyLafordand.theva.ssal was his servant. Beal time was' bell time and the v/ord belJ - is derived from ·the name of the god Bell, famous''in!reland,''Phoeni:c,ia , Central Amer Lc a, and Babylon e Baltimore means the big house of the god Beal. ;',;

Wha teverpossessed exc ellency was said' to 'possess a quality or to be like the ll1i for "qua tr means like .. Ability was ::f;ro.i:n.the lili and utility was the use of the 11li. Thel11i were the fi~~t to

The 111i were the originators of the institution .of marriagee Parents, children, kinfolk, servants, made up the household and were termed the family or the ;,famo:u.s 111i.

One favorabl~ to the'advanc~ment of the 111i was possessed of fidelity for he kn'ew rthe Il1i , and one opposed was hostile. The artistry'of the ll1i brought in the: 'Word IIfacilleu or made by the 1lli and ~ of course, i twas done easily and gracefully. The 111i were the only ones who could write and their lettering was called the "sigillilf or the signature of the 111i. stamped upon a paper it Was a seal. They passed news swiftly by means of signelle or signals.

They legislated, legally, lawfully faT they were the Les FiS well as the Els.

In France and in Egypt the Tlli used the Lilly as the flower emblem. In France it was termed the Fleur-de-Les. or the flower of theLe or Il·li. The ,.rulers in France termed themselves the 111e. Thefamous"Bastille vfas ·the whipping post of the 111e where the

"pris.o1);~r$ were (lam) :basted • Early churches were Basillicas or r-amparts of the 111i. ,The older home of the ruler's of Paris was Tuileries and the new one was Versailles.

As well' as the vassals there were the serville or the ones who served t.he 111i 8, Rabble or poor people -'Nere called proletarians or in Latin proles: the people who existed before the Les, and hence very inferior in culture. Fights were feuds and feudal times consisted of the times when the Illicontested among themselves for hegemony.

Early seafaring boats were the ellide ships. Oars were skulls, and servants were skullions--probably the oarsmen of the 111i.

Hill is Tel in Hebrew and in Greek it is Polio Polis politics, 'police, and polite are the Greek and French forms of 111i that designate the city living folk as civilli does for the Latin.

Below the crest of th.e hill was the dale, and lower dOWn, the vale. In the vale was the v i.Ll.e , the' vi.L ,and "the villian, who was a peasant and sometimes a slave,and in later days'a devil.

: All of this may seem a bit j:umbled with regard to time, so in order to satisfy a time sequence let the history of Rome be used as an example.

; .'

Upon the Tiber River a short way from the sea are a group of hills. These hills were possessed by a tribe of the Illi in very early days and five or six'of the hills still bear Tlli names; to wit: Caelius, "Esquilinius, Viminal us, Quirinalis, Pala tinius, and Capotilinius. Aeneus was an Illi fr'om'111ium. 'Romulus or Rominilius was also an Illi. The early king, Latinus, was also one.

" The most Ancient Romans were the Sic-eli or the Illi whotcut, (for sic means cut), and now is thepreseht Sicily. Seventeen generations before the Trojan 'liar Oenotrus left Greece and went to Rome; there

he found the Elymi, a primitive Illi tribe. On the coast he found the Paralli. :On the crest of Capotiline hill, there was a sacred shrine and .later a citadel built to Jupiter--Capitilinus or in literal translation !lJu the father--the head 111i." Caesar was from the line of the Ju-illi--whence his name, Julius. Caesar traced

his lineage back to thel11i but Christian books have smiled at the idea of his descent.

,The 111i brought to' Rome the famous Sibylline books. I'Sib, 8ibbi"--related by blood, means akin to and sig means write; 8ibilli means akin to the gods and Sigilli means the writing of the gods., So theli teral meaning of sibylline is Ilakin to the Illi." T.hese books warned against warring' wi th Egypt (for the Il1i also

r ul.ed Egypt) and proved of aid in Antony's undoing. The young Siby-

lline books were memorized by the Sibyls, or young virgins, whence the name Sibyl now given to girls.

The name of Caesar's mo th or was Aurelia; that of his Cornelia; and of his paramour, ServilliCi.

Only a few of the nobility ruled Rome. Most of them were related in some manner 0:;:' other •. ce esar r s siste.r,';Julia, married Marius; Juiia's cousin married Marc Antony; s ui Lat s daughter, Amelia, married Pompey. Antony also married his cousin, Antonia; Tertia, wife of Cassius, the assassin of Caesar, was also the mistress of Caesar. Octavius was the son of Caesar's sister's daughter; and Brutus was the son of Caesar and the .brother-in-law of Cassi us. Antony was related to Caesar through his mother , Julia. The Quintillion :family was the fifty Illi family.. From millions to billions the numbers illustrated the greatness of the Illi. The House' of Pompey claimed descent from Neptune,the 1lli god of the seas, and qui te significantly, Sextus' Pompei us wa s a great sea pirate in the time of Antony and Octavius.

"Drilled" flL.egions" are both Illi wor-d s .Oi villi us was a Roman general; even the name Virgil means Strong Illi ..

The Sibylline books promised Rome rulership of the world. It was not a prophecy but more a bit of sequence. Troy had ruled a thousand'years before, and much the same story could be told about Dar danus , the Dardanelles, and Illium.; 'or, about two thousand years before, about Babylon and the Els that settledthereoll .. the banks

of the Euphrates, Again another story of the Illicould, be told on a later day about London and the Thames or Paris and the Loire. It is an ever repeating story.of the high 1lli and the masses'or'the Plebs. park intervals at: time such as the Hellenic dark ;ages, the Christian Dark Ages, do not interrupt the can tinui ty o r bJ,.ond. Vvhen the Roman legions withdrew from Europe the local kings were thereto

begin their ,feuds • .

Charlemagne (Great 1l1i of Cariots) Martel (Illi of war), and Taillifer (SmalL.man, the. tax collector of ithe 111i) , were all Illi noblemen, "facile princeps." In fact, the .c ul.nur e c over ed up by the Roman dictatorship of Europe was much the same as that· which sprouted again after Rome wi thdrew. The Lancelot and Elaine st.ory

is Idylli, (specifically Illic) and the many. names connected with the

story verify it. . .

Summ:arizing all this .Lead s to the statement that a find is possible of anticipation .'.The words IIfesti va Lv . and "holiday" or '!lgallidayl! direct" us to ,the 'word "Jubille" or to a specific occasion such as a Sa turnalia ~ Rich and af'f'L uen t Illi take us to the word idle or the eldi-gangen (a gang of idlers who lived on interest in the middle ages). When we find wor-d s that mean the same whether spelled forward or backward we are guided to the fact that the

: Phoenicians, the Hebrews, .and the early Greeks wrote from right to left; and at one time the Greeks wrote both ways alternately. Vowels were onri.tted at times or placed in for accent. There is the wordf.>r sun, probably wri tten as or.t en as any woz-d , Helios is the' Greek word L-O-S but in the word Soloman S-O-L is the word for sun.

And Sol is now our n.i c kname for the sun. Illiun is the word for light and the Illi worshipped light. Having attained this point it was pos.sible to anticipate the surname of Thor, of Zeua, of Jehovah, and of Jupite-", and to find them all one and the same word: Illi. The pr-oc e s s of this discovery makes ano trier- story too long to be told here.

CHAPTER II ATLA, AEDL, .AND A TL

"Their gods are the gods of the Hills."--I Kings 20:23.

A geography is usually called an Atlas. Atlas was the god who supported the world. - The House of Atlas was the family of gods who ruled the world, and who lived on the island of Poseidon.

The myth of Zeus centers on the island of Crete. He was of the House of Atlas, The Myth of Thor centers on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Thor's name was Aedl. Part of the subjects of Zeus moved to Phoenicia. Fin and Phoen correlate very well.

The myth'of Atl or Quetzalcoatl in Mexico relates to the white god who, after teaching civilization, sailed away to Tla pallin, his island home. The city of Mexico is named from Mexitli, the god of war. Prescot speaks of the great ruins of Mitla.

It, at, id, the, this, that are words of designation or words for distinction. When Mustapha Kemel Phasha changed his name to Kemel Ataturk he became Kemel flThe First" Turk.

Atla means the first trla," Itla or Italy is the same word, for saturn or ahronos spent part of his time in Italy and there could be scarcely any other origin for the name.

While there may be some difficulty in classification it is possible to show that all-the gods of all the nations and languages bore the same surname, the name of Illi. The vowel before and after is of little consequence, for such early languages as the Phoenician, the Hebrew, the Greek, or the Egyptian, generally omitted the vowels. Today such words as "drama" or "either" are pronounced many ways. Illi is shortened to Itel" or "AI," "la"

or "le." A list of some two hundred names for the gods is given at the end of this book for reference.

It would appear from all this that Euemerus (the Greek who taught that the gods were deified men) was right. He stated that he once sailed to an island where he found all the names of the gods with their ages and dates of their deaths engraved on stones. Barring coincidence, how may one ac c oun t for the same VlJ rds for the same things appearing in'distant lands. In Hawaii Aloe is the word for Hello. In fact, our word "hello" is a word for the Illi, the same as hail or allot The Mexican word Teo for god is the

same as our word Theo in Theocracy.

The answer to all this is that the gods were a race of world navigators. Neptune, the god of the sea, carried the name "Earth

-9-

THIRY:: TIIOU3Al~D GODS BEFORE JEEiOVAE

GirdlerH and Atlas, th~ supreme god, l1Knew the depths of all the sees.il Their ships were larger than those that Columbus sailed in. Being the only race of navigators, the Illi commited no piracy among themselves. Plunder enough there was among the savages on

the mainland.

Hesiod,a contemporary of Homer, passes a remark that "There are thirty thousand gods that rule the world." Be also said that liThe gods keep mankind ignorant of the vmys of living, else one would do enough in a day to last for a year. II iilld that indeed was the way of the universal hierarchy that 'ruled the world through

the priesthood. The priests of Mexico, the Druid priests of 11'eland,thepriests of Egypt, each and all took such advantage of the ignorance and the superstition of the savage people that they were able to rule the multitude to such a degree that in Mexico twenty thousand victims stood in line at one·time ready for the sacrifice and not one remonstrated •

And who ~uled the priesthood except the Illi. The oracle or li terally the word of the "1ell spoke frOID the rocks or frOID "behind the veil" and the sibyl or literally the writing of the lIyll' guided the Romans or even was recited to the populace in Iceland down through the Middle Ages by a virgin maid who was reared for that purpose only. The Greeks listened to the oracle until at last the Sophists decided there were no gods. "A god or in other words a irlen could speak from behind the rocks, walk out, and look like any other man. He undoubtedly was initiated into the "El.e " usian mysteries which were given' at Eleusius and which were undoubtedly the "ways of living" spoken of by Besiod.

The secrecy of the knowledge of the arts and of writing was of great benefit to the Illi, and it was of great benefit never to let that knowledge pass to the mainland. Indeed, Diodorus says,"The rites and initiations'practiced by the Athenians in Eleusisand in Satnothrace., of which Orpheus was the.insti tutor; are celebrated' darkly and mystically, but in Crete, at.C~ossus, by ancient law, they are celebrated plainly and openly,· for many gods:went out

of Crete.1I

This condition and this situation of mankind being ruled by a hierarchy of gods who passed the pleasantest part of their OWl:' existence upon the islands while the people brought the first fruits to the 'hilltops for the sacrifice was a phase of mankind's existence that lasted for thousands .of years. Islands did not need fortifications. Weal th flowed:o;~from the hill tops down the rivers to the La Lan d s where luxury flourished • Odyssus at the home o r King Alcynous enjoyed music, tap dancing, gymnastics, and other pleasant diversions. No one seemed to work. There is the legend~of the Isles of the Blest. There is the legend of the island with the gates of pearl, a forerunner of the expression of

"Pearl \T Gates:1 in Revela tion. .

\, v

On the contrary cities on the mainland were walled. Babylon, Troy, Rome, and Paris all had walls.

ThIR7f T110USANP GODS BEFORE JEHOVPE

The legend of Prometheus is simply t):le story of a disagreementamong the gods as to how much knowledge could and would be passed on to the people on the mainland.

'Gibbons?s HISTORY OF ROME gives a hazy picture of the gods in northern Europe before the time of the expansion of Rome. Gods

or goddesses ruled the tribes from their abode in some island or from some sacred grove. liThe unknown symbol of the earth, co vered in a thick veil, was placed on'a ca~riage drawn by cows; and in this 'manner the' goddess, Herda, whose common residence was .i,n the island of Rugen, visited _sever'aladjacent iribe$. of her worshipers. During the progress of her visits the sound of war was hushed, quarrels were suspended, arms were laid aside; and the restless Germans had an opportunity of tasting the blessings of peace and harmony."

He also states that 'lIThe Suevi(most vaiorus and ancient German tribe) always returned to a sacred grove in upper Saxony beyond the Elbe." This Saxony is the upper highlands of the Elb e

ri ver. Heligoland is an island at the' mouth of this .r i ver-. Herda or Earth was wor-shf.ped there.';

; .' ~

After the time of Caesar the Germans were ruled 'occasionally by goddesses. Gibbons says "some of the interpreters of,fate, in the Ba tavian war, governed in the name.of the deity ,the' fiercest nations of Germany.iI

Today ,the Germans are oil: the brink of falling in with the that they are the original race of the gods; As a matter of the barbaric Germans were just as (1ocile as any other wild under the dominion of the "Els,"

Ellmen and'Ellwomen wo rked up the rivers from Elsheimer the home of the Els (Himmel) and procured the Rhinegold, which passed to Heligoland (Eliogland) at the mouth of the'Elbe river. Ancient rites were practiced there. Great castles of wood were built there. Some were burned according to the legend of the Nibelung as told in the Wagnerian opera. Niflheim was another Norse home,

The Loreli were the Rhine maids who; sang on the river. All myths and stories are strung to the word "EI."

The greatest Phoenician god was Oel (identified by some as Kronus) and the commonest Scandanavian name is Ole Oleson or Ole the son of Ole. What might be termed Phoenician influence is quite apparent in Northern Euror:e.

'l'rIIRT1r TIlOUSAl~D GODS B:2FORE JEHOVAH

Phoenicia was in rC9.1ity a small group of gods that ruled a Semitic people. These gods according to inscriptions styled them-

s el ves the Royal r ace , Carvings on stone always show the Royal

.pa i.r- moving on a ship and the Semitic scullions at the oars below. Bible critics are not able to definitely locate Tarshish, another of their cities, Hannibal of Carthage was a rich general of the

Royal Race who purchased an army in,Spain. Bel or Baal or Beal

was their chief secondary god. Baal appears universally as a god. The name Bailey is common Irish. Balin-Q,uintz, Balan-Agab, Iq_1H-

Ba Lam , were divine gods of Ce.ntral America. Vvhat is termed Phoenician influence in Ireland would fill a separate volume--the exception that we t ak e is that it might be Iris'h influence in Phoenicia. There are ten times as many exhibits of fine workmanship belonging to the Bronze Age found in Ireland as in either Italy or Phoenicia •

. But Tara was the ancient prehistoric' capital of Ireland. And Tyre was the prominent city of Phoenicia. Moore~s song, THE HARP THAT R-ll'1GS ON TARA T S 'NALLS is dedicated to the, ancien t capi tal.

A grass hill marks the place today--beside the headwaters of a small river. Ireland comes into history as a full fledged kinGdom, and its origin has baffled many an his torian. Ireland having never known the tread of the Roman soldier, was far along in 500 B. C .. , as far as Europe was in 1500 A. D. OneIrish Philologist has ad-

mi tted that he could not account for the til fl in so many Irish words"

. Suoh words as Tralee and Brill are examples. Ailaill is the old Irish word for "h ous e , ii Bally is the name for va i Lag e , Baal names are innw:nberable. But many. oommon Irish names are the names of kings and gods e l.s ewh er e, . ...

Without appearing ludicrous. may we ask the indulgence of one example. The expression "the Deuo e " is a common by-word. Deuce has been identified with Teus of ,the Teutons and our word Tuesday. It has also r:elated to Zeus 'of. the Greek$ and Dyas of the Indians.

Duke is the same word. Il.duce of Italy carries, it for prestige to his name. We find it hitohed to the Illi surname in the word Deucalion the name of the Greek Noah who was washed ashore in Greece

in prehis,toricdays" We st:):,etch a . point to say that the Greeks neverna;meda IIlanZeUSj nor.did the Germans 'dare to 'name a man Teus; but :i,n.Ireland, Mr. Dooley is so common we have a song 0 Mr. Dooley the first and last name of a god ••

As we have said before' the gods generally ,took to the hills not far'from the rivers nor from the seas. Olympus was the home

of Zeus, and Capotiline hill wa s the home of Jupiter.. Sinai was the home of J eal or Jehovah (for Jehovah said tlJ ea Lo us is m,V nanev ) , Baal probably lived at Beal-bec near Phganici~. The shrine to Q,uetzalcoatl is at Cholula in Mexico. ",T40r commuted between the upper Elbeand the Sea. And Osirus went up theNile from. the sea. The shrine to the Casian Jupiter is in Asia Minor.

Teocalli is the Mexican word:for ,pgramid. It means the house of god. TIleo compares with our ThE39, for god--calli compares with the word tlBally", the Irish word for village or the word "ailai1111 for house. Jupiter-Capitol-inius literally means Ju the father, the head Illi. The Capotiline hill in Rome parallels the vocano in Mexico Popocatepetl~ not unlikely papa or pope the head of the 1111. Very much evidence can be strung along that the gods

occupied the high places in Mexico and Per u, Awe-inspiring ruins are found in the very highest;places in Peru.

Egypt c or r-ef.at-es very well with all this. The first god, before whom there was -nothing of any consequence in Egypt, was Osiris~ Osiris came from the Nil e Del ta, or in other words the Sea. His name means "Lord." And today the word IISirtt as addressed in letters means the same thing. Osiris was white as was all early Pharaohs. Typhon, his brother was red haired. 'The word ItPharaoh"'means great' house. Tyre (sur) Syria, Mount Seir, the plain of Shur, near Sinai, and Assyria are all one family name. Such manuscripts as, the Tel

El Armana Manuscript shows the interrelationship of the countries.

The Elohim were the gods of the Bible and of Babylon (the gate of the gods). Babylon was built on a river and was protected wi th fabulous walls" But down the ri ver near the' sea they are NOW uncovering the ruins of "La" gash, the older town, the home of Sargon the "Lord' of the Sea.

Bargon, 0siris, Jehovah, Jupiter, Deuce, Thor and Quezalcoatl , were all "Ell!; gods. The deri vi ties of the name "Il1i It,'can hardly be counted.

But to go on farther take the gods of India. 'Aridara the first god of India sailed' up the India river to the highlands '0'1' Kashmir. (Kask, Cass and mir, m~re that is the sea'of the Kassites). Cassi is an early branch of the'Illi. From the Cassiterides'in the British Channel, to Spain,'to the Hittites or Kassites, to Circasia, to the mountains of Cassia, and the river to Cassis 'there tread one race that eventually went,to India. Casey, Cassidy, Cassius, are later family" names • At Kashmir, famous for' its beautdt'ul. women,

at Circassia, likewise famous for its women,;:the high places were sought for by the 'lEIs. II' The superstitions of the natives were utilized for:the mastery ,of the country and the Il1i played the

THE ARI THE PRINCES OF CREATION

---'

There is another: word: -of vast importance in the scheme of things throughout the world in prehistoric times." This is the'word Ari, the name of the number two men, who ranked below the gods, yet above the people.

The Aries were at·first tll~ plowmen: Agriculture is Ariculture. It was 'first introduced in each country from Mexico to China by the gods. Fabl·e says that "In Zeus' garden only the sacred ones may plow. II " In Peru a sac red plot is reserved in the garden where onlYtihe Incas'god plowed@ Ideas such as the Garden of Eden, the garden of Zeus, the garden of AlIa, the garden of HespBrides, the garden of As, all suggest the primitive importance of agriculture.

Ari took on the meanin,g of "first." Aristocrats were the first of the land. Many Greeks had the word incorporated in their name. Aristotle and Aristophanes are examples. The word first so originated arr1 is the same word as prince. Princes under the kings were a later formation of the Aries under the gods. Harry, Andar-i , Henry, Indara, India, are formations of the same word. In ancient Ireland the Aries were second rank under the Leuds or the Lees or the gods for such were the Tuath de Daanan. Ireland itself is named after the Ari and called Erin or Ireland.

The German word of salutation lIHerrll is the same word. It means lord or Prince or is left untranslated. The 1I01d Herr" was the man who bestowed the emblems 01' royalty to the aristocrats and the custom became known as Heraldry. The practice became a ceremony attended with trumpets and trappings.

Our salutation OMister" or "Masteril is simply a return to'the seafaring days of the gods. The Herr of the Mast, or the mist, (that is darkness) the herr who dared go beyond known land, hence mystery, or the ship was the number two man below, the owner. The word "Sir" or Lord is the abbreviated form used in letters. Osiris, or the Lord of the Sun was the first· god of importance in Egypt

as we have mentioned before. Darius, Cyrus, are variations of

this word.

As the Herrs became more numerous, work was more diversified.

The boss of the meat shop was·the Butch herr; of the baking, the Bake herr, and of the banking, the Bank herr; and so on until it became a common ending for any word of action. The place of action was the flary". Thus the brewer brewed in the brewery.

The Ari were the leaders of armies for the gods. The Ari were the first rank in the Lygian nation of the Silesians that invaded Gaul. The Ari were the leaders of armies in general. The Tokhari were a Celtic tribe that fought in Egypt in 1300 B. C.

Prince ,Herremon-was king of Ireland about 2.500 years ago. He was a Tuath de Danaan, a god who reigned at Tara. The name Harri ... man was held by an 'American financier not long ago.. Herman is the GBrman form.

Hera was the wife of Jupiter. Eris was a Greek god. Demigods or -Halfgods were Heroes. But perhaps the Irishoalled-'them the O'Harras.

The word Caesar means a Herr of the .Ca.s s i tes 'who in turn were probably the greatest and most powerful tribe of the Els. Upon a high peak of the Cassian Mountains is a saored shrine dedicated to 'the Cassian Jupite-r. Cassius the assassin of Caesar bore the same -name.

The -German -and English name, Henry, was furnished the name of kings for time immemorial. Eighty conseoutivekings of a tribe of Germans bore' the name Henry which means "the' ha'rrylf.. Harla-nd, Ha r ... Lem , Orlando, Harrison, Eric, Andrew, are but wi-de variations of the same name and all have the same meaning.

The original home of the Phaeacians (a t-ribe of gods) was Hyperia a land "beyond" Eria. Hyperion was a "very" early Greek god. Shakespeare placed the word in Hamletts mouth. Hesperides was the home of the fabled daughters of Atlas. Hiberia was in Spain; Siberia was in Asia; Algeria in Afrioa; and Bavaria was in central Europe and possibly not unrelated to the hills of the gods for it contains the headwaters of ' both the Rhine and the Danube.

The Danube river, the Dardanelles, (Thor of the Danites of the 111i) the Tuath de Danaan of Ireland are not so hard to oorrelate when

one will remember the locale of the gods always included an island,

a river, and a hill.

Ariola was a very :ancient city in Belgium., a land named after the god Bel; and Aroi Ovistus was a king of ancient Germany. The King of Ancient Ireland was elected by the Aires and was 'called the Ard Rig Erind.

The word "write" or "cryptostl is derived from the Ari, as is also the word "arithmetictl the measure of the Ari. The word lIheir" leads to the belief that the gods had descendants who were first in line.for receiving the heir. Such words as Alfrederic, Roderic, Ira, Hiram, Pateric, Katherine, Mary, and Sara, are variations

of the word Ari and .all mean Noble. And Noble means the high El.,

The word Mary is more common than Henry or-Harry. Marie was the star of the sea. Mare was the word for sea, as now shown in Marine' or Mariner. As-in Romqn days every girl was named Julia, so in very early days every woman was a Mary.* Women attended their husbands in sea expeditions from the islands. The Els or the Illi gav e rt.hern numerous-names such as Helen, Silvia; Belle,' Ethel,'Kallie, Lula, Nellie, Ophelia, Phyllis, Tallulah, Mahala, Amelia, or Adelia, but to the people every woman was a Mary. As the Els Ln s t Lt ut.ed family life they also '::1,nsti tuted Marriage or "the taking of a Mary. ',I ,Before the - coming of the Famous Illi the savages ran in tribes and were polygamous, the strongest man generally'succeeding, but the blood and lineage coming from a holy mother, who was queen of the tribe. This held almost illliversally@

The institution of marriage threw the line of inheritance to the male where it has been ever since.

, .

It seems evident .t.ha t the_:'Arries were not as eparate line in themselves. They were'selected men, perhaps partly of royal 111i blood and part plebian. The point is not fully settled. Enough :has been established to show that the method of the Illi was to 'have an intermediary -link ,between themselves and the people. As today, it is' very difficult f:or an ordinary citizen ·to gain a c on-

'I\Vhereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the Children of Israel out of Egypt, unto this day but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle." --II Samuel 7:5.

Idalia (that Alia) WQ p. a town in the' island of Cyprus in ancient days, sacred to Aphrodite and to Venus. Cyprus was the home of the Adonai, the lords who ruled small cities on the mainland.. A local 80dwas called Adonai. The name is joined up with that of Jehovah in the word Adonaijah, a Bybical surname. The story of Venus and Adonis as told by Shakespeare is

but a poetical sublimation of the o13gies held upen Oyprus and even at Byblos .on the mainland. The Israelites were often admonisted not to attend such degenerate pleasure jaunts.

Bel or Baal or Beal was the supreme deity~ It is a'name common in many countries throughout the world. Belgium, Baltic, Belfast, and Baltimore are northern words derived from Baal. Venus, .Adonis, Uranus, and Aphrodite were of the El line and were of the Royal Race of Cypress.

To the south of this locality in Egypt Osiris was the first god of any consequence. ,Predating Osiris there was nothing ·of importance Ln Egypt. East of ·theNile there is the plain of Shur, the mountain of Shur, and the river Shure Likewise there was .an ot.hergreat Egyptian god, Horus (from .wh.i ch we get our word horse) the god of time (hours) and who brought the horse into Egypt. East of the Nile there is the Mount Hor, which is the locality of Mount Sinai, and there was arac e of- Horri tes, a not uncivilized people, yet 'profligate like all at that time. Horus and Osiris were ,the whi te men of the El line. The 'river Nile was their river. Elephantineisland and Crete were their islands. 'As Horus brought in the horse, so Osiris brought in the bull, Apis. There;was the

cult of Osir and there was the cult of Apis; and later they were joined into the cult of Osir-apis or Serapis from whence sprang

the word'Seraphimthe name of the Angels that guarded the gates of Nineva and which now may be seen in the Metropoli;tan Museum of Art in New York. Osiris was the Eldest son of Saturn,. a famous world god, from whom we get the word Saturday.

, ,

Between these tvw'locations, 'Byblos, Cyprus, Tyre, and Phoenicia on the one hand, and Egypt, the Nile and Memphis on the other, there came into play the maneuvers of another strain of gods. Jehovah states that IlJealli is his name, and Je means lord and el means gOd. Jehovah Elohim .is his name and there,are two original manuscripts of Genesis, in the one the word god is Elohim (Elohistic) and in the other the word for god is Jehovah (Jehovistic).

THIRTY THOUS1\J'\TD GODC ~{SFORE JEHOVAH

Jehovah told Moses that he had a somewhat different name from the god of Abraham for he was not known to Abraham by the name Jehovah.

That Jehovah was a wan; that Moses -and Israel thought-of him as nothing else but a li virig man is evidenced in many places. Jehovah agreed to show hisfuet, his hands, his back, in fact, his whole person except his face. But Moses and Aaron "Na-dab and Ab i.hm , and seventy of the Elders of Israel wentp,ud saw the god of Israel and there was under his feet a paved work of sapphire stone and upon

the nobles of Israel he laid not his ,hand. Many instances show that god ate and drank. - To Moses he said,"I come to thee in a thick cloud that the people may hear when I-:speak to thee." nYe shall be unto me'a kingdom of priests. II IITake heed,go not up the mount (Sinai), whosoever toucheth the mount shall surely be put to death"ti "Set bounds upon the moun t and sanctify it. tI !lAnd thou shall come up, thou and Aaron, but let not the priests nor the people.1! All this and many passages too numerous to qllote show: that the person

of Jehovah was; concealed from the people, that Jehovah lived on Sinai and did not want any people to visit there.

That he led the children much after the fashion of an army is also shown in many places. liThe Lord is a man of war." "And the lOJ:'d went before them ,by day in a pillar of a cloud, and by night in a pillar of fire.fI ...... "Thrice in a year shall all your men children appear before the lord."

He _ dire-cted .t.he Ohildren' of Israel to build the tabernacle which was.·his tra veling-ten t , In the tabernacl e there' was a di viding veil behind 'which he s tood and gave his dire_ctions. The best of all the food, the gold, the wDmencaptives were brought to the tabernacle for the lord. The veil and the concealed face served to provide a aub s.t I tute and- also prohi bi t recognition of the god when

-s een in the, open. Thus one god apparently led the Ohildren of' Israel for four hundred, years. J' eho.vah spoke from Mount Sinai, in fact, his horne was there for he told Solomon that he "had' not lived _,in a house since the Israel,:i,tes left Egypt • ."

, ,

Moses an d Aaron were the Aries, the number two men. (The Roman word vicar means vice .harry.) They served as the link between the god and man. The angel of .t.h e .Lor d was a messenger of the -god and man. The angel oLthe Lor-d.twa s a messenger of the god for that is the literal t r-ansl,a tion. of the: word. TJle Angels served much as the prime ministers o£ today. J~hovah also:~ad a small ~ut good private army of his own, :Occasionally there were s~en .t,he soldiers. "The first fruits: of:the land, thou shal. tbring into the house of the Lord. II "The rich, shall not, gi v~ more, now thl?i poor less than a

The islands grew richer, hence the prophet said let the people renew their strength.

Jeal constantly reminded the Israelites that he led them from Egypt. In fact, the personality of Jeal then was about that of the average politician of today who is constantly reminding the desired voter of an unfulfilled obligation.

Jeal sold the Israelites here and there at odd times. not unlike the head of a lodge today would sell the proceeds of'the collections to the head of another lodge. Just before the time of Saul there was a lull in the activities of the god. Eli the chief priest ruled in his stead. Perhaps Jeal was sojourning upon some island as the work of his plundering would necessarily require a vacation. The arrangements of the veil were very satisfactory.

But when the'god had found a successful line in the persons of David and Solomon, wealth poured into Jerusalem.

'Shortly before, Troy had fallen e. Illiwn was the favored city

of the gods. When a sy.cc essful king favorable to the gods ruled in Jerusalem the'wealtti'-o'f the fleeing gods flowed into that city. Word went out.;: "J,erusalem was safe, wealth flowed in, ships brought

gold.' '

But.Jeal and Solomon parted ways -and the wealth went away as fast as it came. 'Jealleft 'also. He went back to Mount HorLand to his home on the mountain. Here is where Elijah (God is Jehovah) went to ,- consnl t him. . Eli jah was one of the f·ai thful. Here it was in the Bible, that Jehovah was raised to the eminence of divine ruler of the universe. Bereit was that the glorification of Jehor> vah began. But Jeal was never active again.. The OraculaTways of

. government were on the wane. Indeed the El line was finding bettre."'::' lands to plunder 'in Rome. Rome was virtually:founded after the

fall of Troy and many gods may have migrated there. There was a dark age about 1000 B. C., just like the one after Charlemagne about 1000 A. D.

Paralleling this w~s the passage o~ the gods in the north, The Gotterdamerung, or the twilight of the gods, was taking place. Thor had ruled in the island of Gotland. A Finnish legend states that part of the population of that island moved to Finland.. Helsinki is the Finnish capital and is likely named after the Els.

The Greeks were no. longer consulting the Oracle, the word of god. The Sophists wer~maintaining that there were no gods, that the gods were:a.tnyth. In fact, the remote control method of the god~ made them' seem mythical.

The position of the gods in Egypt is bes~ illustrated by the quotation of Aesculapius:

liThe day is coming when the world will know 'nothing'of the~aith of 'the ,Egyptians. Our land will stand desolate. Tombs and the dead will be its only witnesses. O'Egyptt Naught but fables will tell of thy faith, and no posterity will be.Li eve them. Nothing Will remain but the word hewn in' stone, ,to tell of the ancient gods.JI

A PREHISTORIC RACKET

"All the fat is the Lord's." ~-LeviticQs 3:16

"Sack" is a word common to nearly all langQages, and is pronOQllced the same in all. The beggars and the poverty stricken Negroes of the South of today carry sacks for luggage. Cities

were "sacked "in prehistoric days," the half-starved robbers p l. und er= ing with "sack" in hand.*

BQt before the time of cities the sack of the harries were filled daily by the toilinG peaS4J1ts. Daily sacrifiDe was made on the high hill, either of free wilL or of coercion.' Were' objections or omissions made, the offender'would sQffer either at the hands of his'fellowmen or from the instrument of the Els.

The sacrarium was the place where the sacrificial objects were k5pteFood~wasthe primitive gift; gold and silver that of the later times .In the middle ages the chur-ch collected a tenth and the landlords, the descendants of the original Els, took more for the rental of the land the title of which was lost in antiqQity. Paralleling the word "sacrell the sack of the harrY,is the word "sacellum," literally the sack of the Els. The sacellwn was a small temple, roofless, and not unadaptable as a repository for a small sacrifice. In historical times the temples (hoQse of the Els) were filled with pr ec Lous roo jec t.s placed as gifts ,to the gods

The El or god was never present 'when the gift was made. It is typical of all myths th~t no man cq~ld live'and see the face of god. Thus possessed ,of the seor'et s ,o+, ' writing, of fire and Ld.gh tning,of Bronze making, and even the: secret of his own identity, a god could easily dispose of any recalcitrant victim. ThQS thirty thousand gods from thirty thousand hills, disgorged the people of their first fruits and, sent the cream of that down the" rivers to 'the islands.

Sacrilege is literally translated as the gathering of the sacks of the harries. Anyone who woulcl steal a sacrifice wa s guilty of a very great crime. It was only in,later times that'the word sacred took on its holy meaning. Once the gods were gone,

even 'the temples remained filled, so much and so firm had the idea of sacrilege been implanted in the common mind. For years the temples at Athens remained filled with preoious gold and silver vessels and no one desecrated them.. It was only in lat.er wars that the temples were 'pillaged •.

THIRTY THOUSAJ'\fD GODS BEFORI: JEHOVP..E

The nobility of the Greeks all traced their lineage to the gods. The people on the other hand might better be described by

a quotation from Prometheus Bound: "No craft they knew, with woven brick and jointed beam to pile the sunward porch; but in the dark earth burrowed and housed like sunless ants in sunless caves.1I -- (Aeschyl us. )

But it was from Crete that the Sophists came and taught that there were no gods and that there never had been any_ And Crete was the home of the gods. It was in tha~r home that they lost their honor. Where the living had been the best the worst came. It is. t~e same today in Spain, Russia, and, China. It was indeed a great blessing that the Sophist ever came at all.

It was quite possible tor a man to bring a gift to the high hill for a sacrifice and never know its final destination. Secrecy of face was matched by secrecy of writing. One secret writing of the ancient gods .was the "Runic." Runic literally, means "secret. I' The Slavs, the Saxons, '~he Finns, all had runes. The alphabei- was not uiJ.likethe Latin except that it was fitted better for carving on stone.

The secret of fire was watched by special servants.. Not unlikely gunpowder wa:f(i atso a secret not desecrated until the time of Roger Bacon.,'

Were it necessary for a god to appear before the public his face was hidden or veiled • Thus Zeus on coming down from Mount Olympus veiled his face~ We have already quoted Gibbons to the effect that the goddess ijerda was veiled~ ~ehovah spoke from behind the .veil in the Tabernacle. Such secretiveness added to the prestige of the god or goddess, and also to the awe and respect if not the reverence of ~he public.

We have spoken of th.esecret rites of Eleusis and Sa.inothrace. ,The school, of Pythagorus e l.so required the initiate to .maintain secrecy and not to spealcfor·fo'ur years.

It may have been, purely .ac c i den tai that wri ti;;g ever came into the hands of the people. Cadmus a Phoenician god, settled at Thebes in Greece and brought writing with him. This ·accordirig to legend is the. beginning of writilfg. The writing of the Pharaohs

.and the gods of Babylonwas,nat in the hands of the people.

- :.·r

The brewing of Beer Q;t; '!'Ale '(significantly an El,v~ord) and the mys.t er-Les of the wine press were secrets of the god s., Bacchus was worshiped throughout,Europe and western Asia.. The Egyptians brewed beer centuries before .Chr-Ls t , Brewing in Ireland and in Germany, belonged to the Lue d a and to the, Les ; and was held in s ecrecy till late in the middl e ages. In fac:t, one prominent American Brewery imported its first brewer from a clan of Les a scion of an ancient family on the banks of the Danube who ,had held the

recipe to brew beer for ages, and his name was Steinle. '

Another great secret of the gods was death. Tn$ gods wer-e supposed to live eternally. If it were possible never to show the

-24--

T"rtIR~ T}IOUSAI'~ GODS BEFORE .JEHOVAH

face it was an eas~matternever to let the neople see the deceased body of a god ... The w'ealth of legend;. abouf the immortali t.y of the. gods and the. Ls Larid s of; the blest can only be unravelled! by accepting this interpretation of the selfish secrecy of the:gods.

What. might best be pictured for illustration is t.he woaLt.h and splendor of the old sea {1'od, Iv.linos, and the Labyrinth at Cnossus at Crete. All this site has been excavated and described in detail by Sir Arthur Evans. Plunder" from:·the mainland,' liTho Harvest of· the River" r epos ed in specially pr.epared rooms. ',Shields like that of Achilles ador ned the walls. Bronze war implements were:m<?-nu.f'actured in quantities. Boys and gixls were. sent over from, Greee e on the mainland as gifts of sacrific e. . Jehovah wae a piker compared rtoMinos at Crete. Such were the Bles.sed Isles, the home of the 11s, who loafed and played as the wea'l, th rolled in. 'For it must not be forgotten that when a god pre-empted a hill, he was there only by the c onsen t of the super god, the 1-'\ t II, the Ed II, or the Et II, who had his divvy in the take, and who reposed ill a luxury that wou Ld dazzle a Capone.

Such is the way the Bronze Ago conquered the Stone Age. Added to the skill in preparing more scientific weapons was the Michavellian llilderstanding of the superstitions of the people and the inclination to take advantage of them.

No matter the clan, no matter the religion, the god could superimpose himself and use their beliefs to his advantage. The god who came from "The Land of the Lead" the unknown land of happiness, or from "Avalon" the isle of Fairyland, dWelt on the high hill till rich enough to go bac k home. Thus Archeologists find the picture of the ship engraved on rocks, an emblem of the passage to paradise. Many such carvings have been found in northern Europe. Even the great Pharaoh Menes wrote of his visit to his homeland to the West. Passage to the afterworld at death is described in the Book of the Dead as a passage by ship and WAS symbolized by crossing the Nile.

Paradise was always an island in Myth; Even in India the White Islands were the Islands of Paradise, where ambrosia persisted and where the supreme god ruled. In Egypt the home of Osiris was to the west. The Home of Atlas was on an Island. Tarshish, Crete, and Tyre were later abodes of the Els.

The Indian Epic, the Rig Veda, describes the islands in verse:

flV/here desire and fulfillment are one, In the red spaces of heaven -(West) Where the ghostly food is (Ambrosia) There let me be i1IJ!llortal."

As the Bronze Age Came in, one useful tool was the bell, which could not be made from stone. It took its name from Bel, the number two god of the Els. The peal of the bell at the stroke of the hammer of Thor imitated the peal of thunder from the sky; as the flash of the bronze sword and shield resembled the shining bri.ghtness of the sun. The bell took on a symbolism. of its own. The

-25-

priest wore a small bell as a token 01. his office as the first below god. Bells and' pomegranates were woven into the hem of the robe of . the pric.s,ts: of the IsraGli iss; bells arid pomegranates were; chiseled into the stoneworL in the round towers of Ireland. These towers 'are so old their c:;"-igin is lost in antiquity. The Round towers were the Towers of the gods, the Campanille or Bell towers.: The bells summoned the people to-vassalage, the same as

today. ' ,,:

Possessed of the hill the God built a cassa, a house, so named from the Cassiterides, th~ islands which~ere locatsd near

, England, and not unlikely the S~;:illy isles. Tin, an ingredient

of Bronze was.fuined there. ThUG the Greeks called tin, Kassiteroso The cass ·later became a castle the ho~eof the EI. Horses and chariots 'were brought in and the rule extended to 'the plains. All Europe today abounds in evidence to this effect ..

The ancients were so steeped in their ideology about the gods that when a hypnotized virgin chanted in ill~qonstructed hexameter Greek they accepted the v.o rd s for final authori tyfrom god and shaped ,their conduct in thiilCs of major importance accordingly.

By this important method of chicanery the Oracle ruled. for a thousand years .. Heraoleitus states, "By her maddened mouth she reaches a thousand years with her voice by the 'power of god.!!

signs by which they built towns. • • Alexander built Alexandria in Egypt' by the direction nf the oracle. • • • Likewise smyrna, Laodicia, Nysa, and Antiochia, were founded.

When Alexander pr-opos cd to relocate S.;:ayrna the inhabitants first consulted the oracle for a favorable reply. Reracles, Cadmus, and Alcanaeon received orders from the oracle to lead forth colonies. Even Plato said, "No'sensible man'would try to disturb the directions delivered from Delphi, Dodona, or Arnm.on."*

Abbott stated that the emigrants viere surprised at the accuracy with which the oracle directed them •.• Oman stated that the Delphic Oracle was a well trained emigration agency, a systematic agency for news.

The sanction of the oracle served as a warranty deed to the land of colonization; even the aboriginees accepted the word of the virgin sibyll and let the colonists"move in peacefu;Lly.

Abbott states that the priests of Delphi claimed to possess the whole world 'beyond Bellas.

There were about 260 oracles in Greece but only a few were prominent. The Oracle at Dodona laid claim'to be the oldest, Herein lies the secret of the gods. Dodona, the oracle of Zeus, was a product of Crete. Before the time of the. Trojan war Zeus sailed from Crete and founded the Dodonan Oracle. Zeushimself was never seen .. His voice was the voice of the frenzied ,sibyll. According to Plutarch the Sibyll was selected from the simple daughters of the poor farmers. She wa s beautiful but uneducated, a virgin, and young. She lived in the Temple. She gave her answers in verse. If specific attention was desired the petitioner might sleep in the Temple overnight and then he would receive instruction--presumably in a dream. 'Thus,was Alexander:- as a boy, appraised of his great mission and given ~ vision of GOd garbed as the high'priest of Jerusalem. And trius did Samuel converse

wi th God in the temple of the high priest Eli. '. '

THIRTY TtlOUSill~D GODS BEFORE J£80VAE

The oldest'and probably the greatest was the'Lybian, or the Oracle of Ammon, in Afrioa on an Oasis near Egypt, and which we have inferred to have been the centralized authority for the contrQlof the world of theocracy. Closely 'related to this Oracle of' ,Ammon on the Lybian Oasis was the Oasis of Teman in Arabia the home of Jehovah and the Wise Men of Teman. Colonizing directions were sent forth from here. According to the Old Test~ment the Syrians and the Canaanites were colonies of the gods, the same as I~rael. The Oracle that led the Israelites was the Oracle of Jehovah in the Tabernacle, the voice of the Shekina that stood on top of the Cherubin on the Ark of the Covenant. Thus were the pelasgiof-Greece divided and part of them led forth to Italy by the Oracle ..

That there was in progress a great colonizingmovemerit by the gods is evidenced by the nanes of the countries of Europe. Each European co W1 try has an El deri viti ve name OJ This deserves more research .. , Vl0 shall enumerate some of them: 'Belgium, .Al.Lemania,Angel-land, Gaul or Gael, Kel or Caledonia, Valor Vals and its reverse S-lave, possibly from theRW1ic language; Italy from the word Atlas; Palestine from the word Pales the god of pasture lands; Illyria,Vlallencia, and so forth. Somewhere else in this book we have shown the Eri place names of these same

c ount.r l es and the influences of the Harries ..

That, the oracle was organized is also evidenced by the fact that' there were several times when they were simultaneously silenced. Again all were not equal: When Croesus, fabulous rich king of Lydia, sent seven men to ask the seven oracl es what he was doing at that time the Delphian was one to give the correct an~ver. broesus sent a reward of great wealth that reposed in the Temple at Delphi for hundreds of years.

MarousAurelius (The El of Thor) once rebuked the, Roman Senate for failing to consult the Sibylline Books of Rome •. ' This was after the time of -Ohrist.

Like the Amphictryonic League there was a priestly board of Decemvirs half plebian and half patricina, first appointed in

367 B. O. that took care of the Sibylline Books and received their interpretations from two Greek Interpreters. These books reposed in a stone chest in the Temple of Jupiter on Oapi toline Hill at Rome until 83 B. C. when a fire destroyed them ..

Spurious Sybilline books appeared later, some composed by the Jews of Alexandria. Christian Sibylla also came in vogue.

The last Oracle spoke about the time of Constantine and after that the voice ceased. A thousand years before they had been numerous, even the voice of Beelzebub (the Devil) was heard 'at Ekron in Canaan from whence Jehovah had unsuccessfully advised the Israe-

li tes to keep away. .

,Historians have stated that the various states of ancient Greece went through the forms of government from Royalty to Tyranny, passing through such·stages as oligarchy, aristocracy, timooracy, and democracy.. They omit the one supreme control that

-28-

prevailed throughout Greece durinr= any and all the different forms of government: The Oracle held svmy in Greece no matter what the form of gove;rnment. No great design -wa.s· enacted, no city founded, no colony planted, no war undertaken, without the advioe of the Oracle. Barbarian kings who. stood in awe, credulously presented gifts to enrich the Oracle. Thousands of people consulted the Oracle at Delphi, possibly the most famous Oracle in Greece.

To add to the prestige'of the Oracle, the advice and the answers given were generally correct; the predictions of the future were generally true. And such a c ond i tion requires more t.han the usual explanation of coincidence.

Oracle literally means the word or the mouth of the El.. It comes in with primitive Greece from prehistoric times. Beside a spring, within a grove, inside a cave, or from atop a hill, there came the voice of the Ora~lein answer to the questions« The voice was generally that of a woman. The first two Oracles of Greece were said to have been stalen from::Egypt. The witch of Medieval, Times is a related phenomenon sr.-Tn later'Greece there were temples and well built places for the Oracle, places filled with the, rich and precious gifts of the people. There were special places .bu i.Lt for the Oracle in Solomon1 s Temple. In the Ark of the Covenant the Voice came from atop the cherubim on the Ark inside the Tabernacle" There is nothing to hinder the statement that the Oracle of God in Solomon's Temple was like that Oracle of the Greeks at Delphi. It was the word of Gode, It consisted of directions for the ways of living. It gave advi6e to

Kings. .',

"

Alexander the Great consulted theiOracle at Delphi. Caesar

Augustus consulted the Oracle or the Silyl at Rome.

That'the Oracle was organized, that it represented a subtle rulership, mayjie inferred from .s ome Of the following acc.oun t.s of its activities and some of the results of those activities. The great Olympain Games that were held every four years, and that in a way co-ordinated Greece and served as a check to the constant warfare of the Greeks was sta,rted by ,the Dorian Oracle at Delphi.

\

I "It was a r uie, from old time that Greeks should not consult the Oracle with regard to war against GreekS. If --Xenophon, in Hellenics.

. . .

The Oracle was instrumental in getting a tribe of the Pelasgi to migrate from Greece and to settle in Italy.. (Such similar movemen ts of 'people guided. by ,the gods .t.ock. pl ac e when the oanaani tes were moved from Capthor,. when the Israelites were moved from Kir,,) . When the Territ,ory of Cirrat.l, revolted, the Oracle told

Solon to appropriate the whole territory to the service of the Temple. Dir8Cctly the Athenians conqu:ered this island and dedica-

ted all of its wealth to the Oracle. The Oracle at

Delphi was the consultant of Lycu.rgus in the framing of his famous laws for which Sparta ,was renouned. Pythagoras, the famous philosopher and mathematicia,n, and the founder of a great secret society, visi t.edthe Delphian Oracle and ~ r.ece i ved instructions. Four years of· silence was the prerequisite foradm1ttance to the Pythagorean Society ~

The errt.i.r-e state of Ellis was as one temple devoted to the gods. It was sanctified and sacred. It was not necessary for it to be fortified. Many rich Greeks drifted there to l~ve and to builq wealthy homes. The Eleans managed tho Olympian games during 'which the en tire 'peninsula underwent a holiday, a sort of universal truce. Weapons were laid aside, even as in ancient Germany,and a period of universal peace reigned.

The Eleusinian Mysteries were related to t.hogods and to the Oracles. They were r-enoun er; for theirpuri ty and decorum. They had a good'ef'feot OIl .. the morality of the people. The. Greek law protected. the" Eleusinian Mysteries. Part of their program was a sortof~o~~lity play. Criminals upon proper opprobation.could be absolved from their crimes. They could be restored to their former places in society. It was not unlike tho res t.or-at.Lcn of the backslider in the present day Chricstian religion.

To protect the Temples, the Oracles, and tile gods, the Greeks established the Ampnictyonic league (Named from Amphictyon, the father of Hercules).. This league consisted of two members selected from each Greek state. This league was longli ved and strong. It once declared-war against the state of Orissa for some offense' against the gods, captured the state and dedicated life in Greece, and on dmln in time till the period of the Roman Emperor Constantine whence it was supplanted by the papal activities of Rome ..

Thus was the Oracle of the Temple protected and in turn the Oracle made peace between states and between princes. It gave advice in time of war. It framed laws. It settled states. The wealth deposited in the temples was enormous.

It may be stated in general that the Oracle was a fundamental Greek institution. The El in oracle is related fixedly to the Greeks in the word Hellenes, the name of the-Athenians. The founder of the Hellenes was Duoalion or Duke Ali, a'nephew of Atlas, and the son of Prometheus. "Duke!! means 1 eader, "ali II means' god. Ducalion ~dentifies himself as belonging to the raoe of Els, from which sprclJ.g the Greeks.

Extensive reading in Greek history will convinoe one of the relation of the Greeks to the Great Race of Els, who lived partly in Crete and in Memphis. Cecrops, the earliest teacher of the Pelasgi (the earliest Greeks) was presumed to have come from Egypt.

,/ ,

Minos, the early king of Crete, received his laws from the Oracle of ~upiter& Minos brought Greece into the vassalage of Grete. Hostages were taken from Greece to Orete. Exoavations at MOSSUS in Crete show the Cretans as highly civilized whites. Many fables placed Crete as the home of the gods. Like Cyprus it received its wealth and lay unfortified.

Rhodes ereoted a great statue to the god Helios, a primitive Greek god of light which is the meaning of the word Helips. But the Egyptians also worshiped the god Helios and the city or Heliopolis was the reputed starting point of the Children of Israel when th8y departed from Egypt. P..hodes indeed erected the statue as a t.hank offering to the Egyptians f or favors given in time of war.

Illium or Troy (Troilius) was fortified by walls supposedly built by the gods. Inscriptions of the Phoenicians reveal a royal race 'and the relationship Qf,the king or prince of Tyre to the gods will be shovyn more fully in a later chapter.

The . Greek Athens, the goddess of education, 'was said to be the Egyptian goddess Naith of Sais Egypt. Naith is the same word as Athene with the "N" placed before instead'of after as in DogLatin; If this is discredited as accidental, consider the word Mazda; the god of light for the Persians, and its correspondent Tamuz, the name of the Phoenician god of light.* Or consider the Egyptian No-Ammon and Ammon-No. 'As ancient names were generally subject predicate word sentences, to change the form is not unlike the reversal' of sentence form in passing from English to German.

GOD CAME FROM TE;,JAN

As there is no written record of the way in which Thor led the people out of Gotland, nor how Apollo Milesius led a colony of the Milesians into Ireland, nor how the Oracle of Delphi sent a colony to Italy, nor any of the many other colonizations 'that took place in the first and second mi LerrLums before Christ, we must of necessity turn to the writtenwor.ks of the Old Testament to, find the details of the workings of the great theocraticgovernm.ent that moved and controlled the lives of so many peoples

For a period of time the vast area of Asia Minor and adjacent Europe was controlled by the Theocracy centralized at Egypt. Amen-Ra was king'of the gods. The word Amen seems to mean verily as it does today, and the word Ra means the king. Rah, Ray, Rajah, are words for king. The Hurrah is a vernacular variation. The word Amen appears in such words as Tut-ank-amen a great Pharaoh about the time of Moses, and in Amen-hoteph another Pharaoh.

Thus wi thoutthe intention of hurting the feelings of any seriously religious Christian we Laurich into some of the records of the Els that appear in the Old Testament.

"God came from Teman', and the Holy One from Moun t Paran. II =-Habekkuk 3: 3.

In the Persian Gulf is the sacred island of Dilmun; with which the Babylonians had connections by sea •. At the head ot the Persian -Gul.f there was the e9-rliest settlernen t of Lagash, a white settlement of Gentiles who later went to Surner and Akkad. Babylon was later planned and built; it did not grow as some other cities did. Babylon means the gates of the Elohim. It was so named from the many famous gates that pierced its walls.

At the head of the Red Sea on the Gulf of Alaba was the ancient'city of Elath (the El);. Elath.was very'close to Mount Sinai, Mount Seir, MOUJ:ltHor,and MOWlt Par-an , all on r th e left. Below Elath on the right was Edam and Ternan and Yeman, the home of the wise men of Edam, the Dukes of Edam, and the highly educated Queen of Sheba who visited Solomon. From Elath there is a dry river bed that leads to the Dead Sea and to the Holy Land.

There seemed to be an understanding that the Mediterranean was the sea for one race of IDs and the Red Sea tor the other. When Solomon was at the heighth of his power he decided to build large ships which he launched at the port of Elath. Hiram of Tyre had a fleet with that of Solomon and they sailed together on long voyages of three years each bringing back rich cargoes and ·hundreds of talents of gold. So, near as Jerusalem was to the Mediterranean, it yet was at the time of Solomon the capital of the Red Sea. It may be seen that Solomon's achievements fit-

ted into an already established extant sea economy. It was not voyages of discovery, it was rather voyages of commerce. But later, after Jehovah had divested Solomon of his power the great King Jehosphaphat arose'and tr±Bd to imitate Solomon. He built ships at~lath for trade, but God destroyed those ships.

It seems the Israelites were destined only to go so far.

A greater Hierarchy ruled from somewhere in the nearby southland.

!' ;

Solomon was the first king to use 'chariots. Chariots and horses were used in Arabia and: in Egypt. The royal chariot -of King Tut was found in 1922. God is represented by Isaiah as comingin a chariot. Habakkuk states "That Thou didst ride upon thy horses and thy chariots of salvation .... thou didst walk thru the sea with thine'horses.1I Literally the royal race of the Els used ships, horses, and chariots in the reduction of Arabia*

Early Arabia was divided into small city states each ruled

by ,an Ilah which was-a god, and each having a local·-templeand a high priest. Contracts for all business were recorded at the temple so that the gods~Cbuld keep tab o~ what was gojng on. At the locality of Teman an ancient stone inscription has b cen found which depicts a new god as taking power. The new god stands'before the priest.. The stone was smuggled out of the country and is now in the Museum of Paris.. Pliny states that the priests of Arabia placed a tithe on the incense trade •. Later the priests became priest ki.ngs , Many local names of ii.rabia b.avethe word Ilah as a root. Elula lies just below Teman; Hail is a little east and further in the desert.. That Ila is impor.tantfollows from such words as Samuel which is Hebraic for lithe name.d s God, (f as ShumutlUalay which

is Arapic for "the name is high,1l as Shemuel which is the Bybical word f6r "the name is God "and as Shumualail u which is Babylonian for lithe name iss'urely God,," It is said that' the same words appear in the Phoenician , tHe Elephantine-pa.pyri:-,and the Telel Amar ....

The Arabian word Saros uil una means the II sun is our god 11 and thus connects the Elsof Arabia with the Els·of'Illium or of Troy, and with the Pharaoh Amen-hotep of Egypt who iwas at first a worshiper of light. Today the sultans are generally men selected from a superior race and are not of the local people.

Numerous writers have shown, that Arabia was the locale of the Book of JoP .• They have shown how t.h e rpl.ao e names agree with the personal naines, and' how the Arabian scen~s fit those of the Book. In Job 1-6 the sons of God (Elohim) pre$ented themselves, before the Lord, and Satan was among them. A: .e Lan of ·.the Els would fit in well as the sons of God, and. Satan see,m;3, to be a high priest of the serpen t cult, a form 'of worship tha t was: dying out before the onslaughts of the sun:fult. In such andonllV suchan interpretation

oan any sense beplac ed in the lines. Job was the follower of the El and no serpent cult could dissuade him. The two cults were at friendly parlanoe. Such rich shieks as Abraham and Job presented valuable giftstDo":the gods and they were a souroe of 1i ving for the heads of the theocracy.

In the Yemen in south Arabia rich and precious gifts were brought as th8.£k offerings to the temple. Sometimes entire families presentodthemselves before the temple as a gift. That was not unlike the Levi tes(Followers of the Els) who were to present themselves to the Tabernacle as the servants and luggage bearers of the Tabernacle. Later they became the servants of the Temple of Jerusalem. Early Yemen inscriptions are now being deciphered. The" language resembles thB Gothic but its characteristics are of a derived language resembling the Phoenician.

In several places we have found the Cna.Ld ean s of Babylon called Kasdeals.. This related them to the people of Circassia and ofCaucassia.. Indeed the word is of importance secondary only to that of the El .. The Hittites were Kassites. Cassiopes means fort of the Cassites.. It is the same word as found in Kassi terides

of which we have spoken previously. Cassi will relate the city builders from Ireland to India just the same as the word El.

In con.sidering the ways of the governments of Arabia where-

in the local gods took direct providential control of the .most minute details, . there is an astonishing parallel in the details

and descriptions given us in the Bible. In I Kings 7:27 there

is described the wheel cart which carries the sacrifice. In I Samuel 2: 21 !lAnd the Lord visited Hanna so that she c one ei v ed , • • and the child Samuel (His name is God) grew before the Lor d ;" In view of the greatness of samuel was he indeed a child of the Temple? And was not the Temple a great organization that was living off the sacrifices of the people?' Consider the walls that surrounded Jerusalem--such names as the "Fish Gate" and the "Sheep Gatelt indicate that the sacrifices were enormous. Should the sacrifices cease there woUld be great commotion among the Temple parasites.

That other nations beside Israel were led forth by some agency of the Els is indicated by the passages in Amos: "Havenot I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor? and thG Syrians from Kir?" IfCaphtor is Crete,

as some say, then there is a relationship of the Els at Knossus and Paestos to the Els at Egypt. The relation of crete to Greece has already been snown , The Bibylical words Kir ja th Sepher, wrri.ch means city of books, and the word Kirjath-debir, which means city of words designate an oracle that predates the coming of the Israelites under Moses. All the information that may be gathered about the Canaanites indicates a form of Theocratic control just like

that of Israel except that the god was Bel.

Going farther into the .method at: control VIe find in J'udges 10 Ilthe Lord was hot against Israel and he sold them into the hands of the Phillistines • " • and in to the hands of the children of Ammon til This intimates a relationship between Jehovah and Bel and Ammon.

The gods of the Red Sea recognized the gods of the Mediterraneant This indeed shows that the lands were divided among the gods as is

-34--

T:SIRT'I THOUSAHD GODS B"SFORE J:EHOVAE

indicated in Deuteronomy 32:8 flVlhen the most High divided the Nations ..... Jacob is t.he lot of His (Jehovah1s) inheritance." The Most High may have 'been Amen-Ra, i~ can only be inferred •

. When Moses led the Children of Israel forth he did not go by the short route of Canaan, but he took them by the back do@r, the Arabian desert. On the route he said, "Distress not the Children of Ammon" ..... "Meddle not with the Children of Esautl ..... (on Mount Seir) ••• "Distress not the Moabi tes, neither contend with them." I have given Ar;el (a city named after the first and second Lords of the world) unto the children of Lot for a possession. Such references show a recognition of the ri'ghts of the other S0-(:;" tlers and the other gods.

The usefulness of the other gods came in the discipling of

the Israeli t es , For unfaithfulness the Israeli tes were sold to Cushan in Mesopotamia for eight years; to Eglom, king of Moab-for eighteen years; to Jabin, king of canaan, to the Phillistines, to the children of Ammon, and to Sisera. Again Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, took Israel to Media "because they did not obey the Lord" and Nebuchadnezzar took'them to Babylon for seventy years.- Jehovah states "I Will-bring again the captivity of lVIoq.b, of Ammon, of Elam, of Egypt, of Jacob, and Judah. That Assyria and Babylon were kingdoms under the influence of the El theocracy one needs only

to inspect the stone carved statues that survive today. In the Metropolitan Museum of Art at New York there are large stone images of iL'1gels (wingEd) doing homage and service to the god. The god administers ablutions to a sacred tree. Nebuchadnezzer was under the .. infl uenc e of the priesthood as told in Daniel and in the Book of Bel and the Dragon.

It was not difficult for the priesthood or the oracle at Babylon to advise Nebuchadnezzar to war upon Jerusalem. It was not hard to get help when needed to cha stiLs e a recalcitrant people. Thqs in II Chronicles "You have forsaken me, I will in turn forsake you, and deliver you in to the hands of Shishack .. tI Then Shishack came undoubtedly at the oz-der of the 0 Egyptian priesthood and (12:8) Shishack took away the treasures of the house of the Lord.

o The treasures were not lost to the priesthood , they orily reposed in ;Egypt; or in Babylon as when Nebuchadnezzar took the golden. vessels away from Jerusalem. The same priesthood and or ac l e ' was in .cor;ttrol and upon the proper time reset'tlement was possible, after eno~gh chastisement had been q.dministered.

To broaden the view of this Theocratic oontrol of the near East, consider the case of the king of Tyre~ As in the Middle

Ages ~he Pope of Rome stood above the kings, so in the first ·millennium before Christ the gods yet s tood above the, Kings of the Levant. We quote at length, for the passages give a vivid description of the weal th and, splendor that the rich enjoyed once they were ensconced .in the high places.

"(3) -iLl1dsay;~to Tyrus, 0 thou that art situate in the-entry of the sea, which art, a merc.hant of the"people for many isles, thus sai th the Lord Goci.:'O Tyrus, thou has said, I am of perfect beauty.

only become' so great. If he attempted to go farther he was check-mated. Win, lose, or draw, the Temple always won. Whether in Tyre, Jerusalem, Babylon, or Memphis, the gold was always in the Temple. Should ~ king desire to break the shroud of their mysteries and desire to become one of them he was generally cut off.

Only the initiated could be a god: such as Enoch (whose name

means initiated) who walked with God and God took him. That is,

he went with the gods and lost direct contact with the people ..

ALEXANDER, THE TOOL OF THE ELS

Once there is opened up' the evidences of a theocratic despotism controlling Asia Minor, the circumstances surrounding the short life of Alexander the Great grow increasingly suspicious. Was he the tool of the El Theooracy? Briefly the oventsthat touch upon this question may be rehearsed.

., ,

Alexander, noble, well eduoated, but young, at first consulted the Oracle at Greece with regard to thecoLlqueststhat he had in view. "Thou are irrestible" was the enigmatic reply of the voice from the Temple.

Starting to war'he crossed into AsisMinor. At Gordium he cut the Gordian knot, conc erning which it had been said by the Oracle that whosoever untied the knot would be lord of all Asia.

Defeating Darius he proceeded to Syria and Phoenicia. He captured rryre and presented himself before Jerusalem. Jerusalem, however, opened its gates to him for the high priest had been instructed (,by god, the Oracle in a dream) not to resist. ' Alexander did ,llot' molest Jerusalem. He is reputed to, have stated that a high priest resembled the person he had seen ina dream back home in Macedonia, and that the person garbed like the high priest had told rurn about his destiny to-conquer Asi a.

"

Alexander proceeded to Egypt and to the shrine of Ammon (Amen) and asked the voice of the Oracle if he (Alexander) were'indeed the son of god. Ammon is reported to have answered in th~ affirmative.

Fr.om Egypt Alexander went to Asia, conquered the Persians and part of India and returned to Persepolis and Susa. He provided bountifully for the Jews, establishing a'place for them at Alexandria and inviting them to settle there, which they did, forming a large part of the vopulation. He also extended privileges to the Jews of Babylon and Media. He reestablished the old regime

in Egypt. (This would replace the priests in higher standing than with the government head at Persepolis.)

After oonquering the so-called world he established himself as an oriental despot which in other words 'would mean that he desired to be a god. He was learning fast, after the fashion of' Solomon or the Prince of Tyre. But his life was short. He died, aged thirty-three, after a drunken orgie.

He was said to have been the fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel who foretold the destruction of the Persian Empire.

Such briefly are the facts of history. No Sherlock Holmes is

needed to note that Alexander contacted three :forms of' diety, the Oraole of Greece, the Temple priests of Jerusalem, and the Shrine of Ammon of Eypt. He did obeisance to each of the three, indicating'that he aCknowledged each of the three as superior to himself, openly at least. The way was paved before him by the wis~ dam of the priests who played the role of spies for they were tired of Persia and wanted Greek influence favo~able to them,to come in.

<. ~ -: .

, Alexander's fault lay in the: fact that he thought himself a god and undertook to exercise that divine prerogative. This was too .much for the bo ss'es in .control •. He pos aes s.ed the rau; t of the Prince of Tyre. He was like a Cherub. I1e was blessed. But he died, aged thirty-three; If drunken. orgies killed men all potentates would have died, aged thirty-three, or ea~l.ier.

Thus through history we see the destruction. of Ammon-No; of Tyre, of Jerusalem, of Ninevah, of Babylon, of Persepolis; through the instrumentality' of the subtle control of the Els, selfishly seeking the riches of the treasury of the temple.

Each conquering king was favored by the priesthood on coming into power. As he waxed rich he lost his power' e

ATLAS

Miracles are ceased,

And therefore we must needs admit the means

How things are -perfec ted. -- (Shakespeare, King H. V.)

The utmost bounds of earth far off I see Where Thetys and Ocean boast to be

The parents of the gods. --(Homer.)

The house olf Atlas ruled the world in the age before the b eg i.nn Lng of wri tten history; an age that we shall approximate to extend from 5000 B. c. to 2000 B. C. The Atlas myth sprang from the fact that the house of Atlas bore the burdens of the whole world. Thus the Greeks gave us the statue of the powerful man actua~ly upholding the earth. In fact whatever the Greeks gave us has been glorified and sublimated so that a lot of it is doubted.

In the Bermuda Islands Professor, Beebe discovored the preglaoial beach of the Islands.· It lies several fathoms below

the present beach. In his famous bathysphere he traveled along the bottom of the sea. Following his vivid descriptions one is led to believe that there was much more land in the Atlantic Ooean during the Glacial Age. The gulfs along our Atlantic seaboard were once river beds. While the continents were covered with ice, the islands were larger than now and furnished favorable havens for the development of mankind.

The Glaciers in the Ice Age did not come down from the .poles ;';they formed upon, American and upon Europe. The Gulf stream!led northward between the two continents. It was on rsom~"island in the Gulf stream (Ireland) that man advanced so

. far'.' ,'The process of development or mankind is a process called , lIorthogenesis, II or straight linedevelopmen t , (In this process

nature develops a specialized organ without knowing when to

,st'()p~ , For example, the large tusks of the elephant outgrew their'usefulness and dragged them down.) (Scientists are worried E!-b'Ollt this development; insects and bacteria are susceptible to the process. New diseases may come from the effects of the proc ess.) The brain of mankind is a r-e su l t of orthogenetic deve .. , lopment that took plaoe very rapidly. It is not too far fetched to-state that the possessors of th-e highly developed brain may have thought that they were gods.

The Greeks had a myth about the Hyperboreans, or the ~eople who iived beyond the North VVind. Thomns:Moore wrote a poem'called the' §.Q.gg Of the Hy-oerborean. Pythagoras claimed that he, s piritually, was a-hyperborean. These Hyperboreans were a highly ta-

lented, musically inclined race of superior men.

During the Ice Age, Ireland was separated from Greece by the Glacier on the continent of Europe. Soutllern Ireland lay basking in the sun when Germany was covered wi th .co e , During the Ice Age the Hyperboreans would have had time to dev81o~ orthogenetically a superior brain. The three specific things re su L ting were agriculture, city or hall building, and the theocratic control of the world. Greek culture apprbachedthecul t.ur e of t'h e Hyper-bor eane ,

. which came in through the I'Slai:ids. English c ul. ture of today is vestigial of that same process; they still have their Halls, their Lords, their gardens, and they, cina way, control nearly all the world by a process that is questionable, if not theocratic.

,

For lack of any other likely place we assume that the gods evolved from the Hyperboreans, and that the house·of Atlas gained control oithe race of gods.

Euripides called. (At~as. "a warder' of the heavens":

tlThere .stands At;L9.s, warder of. the heavens bounds, . And there the daughters of the Hesperus,

Who watch over the golden apples.

There is the palace where was wedded the immortals, There nectar foams, and earth yields up to the gods The undying food of this blessed life."

Homer calls Atlas "the. wizard":

"Aseagirt isle" where is the naval of the sea, And where a goddess hath her habitation,

The daughter of the,wizard Atlas,

Who knows the depths of all the seas.1f

Bomer called Pos ed don "the Earth Girdler.:r Poseidon was the sea god of the Atlas Dynasty who circumnayigatedthe earth. The Romans· Lat er- called him Neptune. Neptune.:is a later form.

The A.tlanti,O ocean took .i1is name from the house of. Atlas. There was a city on the gulf of Mexico by the name of Atlan. The Atlas Mountains in Africa wer-e also so named. Th.e "Atl H syllable ending is found in the names of nearly every god of .Mexico.

a golden statue of a god standing in a chariot driving six winged horses. This statue wasemblematical of the sun for the gods were sun worshipers. Hund.r-ed s of other statues stood in the palace for it was an eighth ofa mile on each side. Inside at the center th ere was an untrodden sanctuary, sacred to Cli to and to Poseidon. Outside there were hot and cold springs surrounded by buildings an d trees' and basins' for the baths of the gods, the kings, the citizens, the womErrl, and, last of all, the horses and other beasts.. Waste from these baths was conducted to a grove of orchards and gardens. Gymanasium, race tracks, harbors, and ships furnished a complement to the sanctuary.

Farther inward was a sanctuary in an assembly place. Here were written .t.h e laws on a large stone column. Here roamed at large the sacred consecrated bulls for the sacrifice.

Once each four years the assembly of the gods gathered

there and a bull was sacrificed' and bled on the column of stone.' Each god took a goblot of wine, dropped in a small clot of blood, and made a libation, and swore that he would give judgment according to the laws on' the stone; that he would take co unc LL in all the affairs of war, and that he would acknowledge the high command as given to the house of Atlas.

·Plato also states that so 16ng as the laws were obeyed

and "while the god strain in the people was'yet vigoroustl everything went along O. K. "The wealth of gold, the wealth of

their pos~essions they considered a light load, for they were masters of themselves."

Francis' Bacon, the father of modern inductive reasoning and perhaps' the author of Shakespeare, also wrote a fragment like 'that 'of Plato. In his New Atlantic he states:

.. . --

"You shall undar st.and that about 3000 .vears ago, or somewhat more, the navigation of the vwrld(especially "'for remote voyages) was greater than at this day."

",. ,"" -- (1600A. D.)

It is a matter of recorded history that in Caesar's time the ships of the Atlantic were larger than those of the Medi ter, ranean. p .. nd in the days of Solomon,' about 1000 B. C., the ships of Tarshish were considered as large ocean going vessels.

Thus as a matter of recorded myth there are three men who style themselves the king of the gods. First Atlas of Poseidon, then Dionysius of Crete and lastly Amen-Ra of Memphis.

THE GODS OF IRELAND AND THE TUATH DE DANAAN

fiNo wonder tho their strength be great,

Sons of kings andqu~ens.are one and all.n , --(Old Irish Saga.)

The history and the mythology of Ireland goes farther back in time than that of England, Scandinavia, France, or Germany. The treasures of the Museum of ' Dublin show the proof. While the continent was covered with ice, Ireland enjoyed a pleasantclimate. Ireland belongs to the s·ea; England to the continent.

The poetry and music of Ireland are rich in mystical loveliness. The relation of Ireland to Greece grows more evident as the s t.udy i.o r their myths Lncr eas es •

. Bronze musical instruments, ornaments, tiaras, necklaces, razors, swords, harps ,trumpets, eating utensils, all of exquf.-, si te wor-kmansh l p , have been found in Ireland.

The prehistoric ,round towers of Ireland'are of intriguing interest. There are over an hundred of them, each of w,hich is from 80 to 150 feet in height and some twenty-five. to thirty feet in diameter at the base. They are made .of stone and are so well built that in the Middl~ Ages a cathedral was built about one of them. The cathedral has since fallen away, but the tower remains. Prizes have been offered for ~he best explanation of the origin

of these towers. The .masonry is of such character t'ha t it, .is very lasting •. The st6ries are laid neatly together, soclase that the joints are 'scarcely perceptible, whd o h was a custom of the master masons of the gods • This was the style of: the anc Lerrt : masonry in.Cusco, Peru,'in '. Phaestosin Crete, in. Gaza in Egypt,. and perhaps in Alba Ddnga 'Ln Italy.' I:t was a.seroi-dry masonry in which the stone work) is: carefully laid out and cut with a very hard tool, perhaps a tempered bronze chisel. Over the opening of one tower is chiseled some pomegranates and bells. This is the insignia ot the priests of the Ch i Ldr en of Israel for upon their, robes there:were woven the same design, pomegranates and bells ..

(In fact, it is apparent that the culture that Jehovah impo s ed upon the Israeli tes was an already extant system of ;priesth ood , )

These round towers were the thunder towers of Thor. Thor was the handsome red bearded god mentioned in the Islandic Edda. He might possibly be identified with Arthur in the legend of King Arthur; or with Hathor of Egypt; or with Capthor of crete; or with Dar or Dardanus the fOwlder of the Dynasty of Troy at the Dardanelles (The Elles of Dar). The home of Thor might have been at Tara, the most ancient capital of Ireland. (The slide from t to th is a fac tor of Gri.mmt sLaw. )

THIRTY ~rlOUSM~D GODS BEFORE JKqOVAE

In the Er~c Vidforlas Saga of the Eddas, Eric reached Odain Sakir by being swallowed by e dragon. (This probably means that he was shipwrecked by a typhoon.) OdainSakir was a place of great beauty, with a tower suspended in midair. The tower was reached by a ladder. (This is the way the entrance to the round towers was reached.) Delicious food and wine were served to Eric and he was treated to' a bed to sleep upon. A youth told Eric that he was in Odain Sakir and that it was near paradise. (Eric, was shipwrecked, reached Ireland when it was inhabited by the gods, the Tuath de Danaan.)

AnotheT parallel is in the.story·of Ifing, the great stream between the ea r th and the sacred land, whose waters never froze. (This must have been the Gulf Stream. that divided the Island from Europe. )

In t.l.e Norse mythology, Asgard, the city of the gods, was separated from the continent by a bridge or by the rainbow. It wa s situated on an island. Its ruins will someday be found as were the ruins of Troy and of Mycenea and of Cnossus.

Gladsheim, the great hall in the Palace of Odin, had twelve seats for the council of the gods. This is very reminiscent of the council of the gods for the house of Atlas in the Palace of Poseidon, (Sidon). The Palace of Thor, Thurdvange, had 540 halls, which suggests that it was built like the Palace of Minos in Crete.

Valhalla, the gold and silver Palace of Odin, also suggests the gold and silver Palace of Poseidon. Valhalla was the halls of the Vals. It also suggested the halls of Lokapala BhakhyanaParva, the Indian Sanskrit name for the Halls of the Celestials. It suggests the Halls of Tara, and the Halls of Olympia, and even the halls of the English Aristocracy of the Middle Ages.

Himenbiorg, or Heaven Tower, of the Thunder gods, Thor and Valaskialf, whence Odin'could watch all gods and men, was the round towers of Ireland, each of which .ha d windoWS at the top to command views in all direc tions. Here were the !lEl' s Bells" of which we have spoken previously.

Today, ruins of the round towers may be seen at the bottom of the shallow seas near Ireland.

The Valkyries, the battle maidens on swift horses, were without doubt the Am.azonian maids who went into battle, the same as men did. The word Hilda is a present day connotation of the same thing.

As the red haired gods went up the Shannon river and settled in central Ireland, they met the dark haired, dark eyed, smallish o a ve-dwelling type or. the Mediterranean savage. The Conquerors, the Tuath de Danaan, were a tall, blue-eyed, red ... haired Caledonian type of Hall dwellers. Today both types may be seen among the Irish people.

THIRTY TIiOUSAI'JD GODS BEFOHE JvqOVP.E

Let us quote'some of the poetry of Ireland, which relates to the Happy Land, the possible abode of Atlas.

"There are thrice fifty distant isles In the Ocean to the west of us; Larger than Erin twice

In each of them or thrice."

(Erin was small in Gladical times.)

"A folk that thru ages long Know no decaying;

No death nor sickness there Now voice raised in wailing.

"Such games are played there Coracle on waves play

With chariot .onland contends; How swift the race. ,is a"

(From the Voyage of Bran to the Land of the Immortals • .An

old Irish Saga.) - - - -- --- -- --

The above lines compare favorably with the following quotat~on from Hesiod, a very early Greek writei.

!!While Saturn reigned, those then his subjects were, Who lived thelife'of gods without all care.

Whom sorrow, labor, nor old age oppressed,

But .aoundn e as, both in hands and feet, 'them bless ed , II -- (Hesi ad. )

Diodorus, a Latinwrit~r, states of the~visits of ApollQto Ireland. 'The surname of Apollo was Milesius, Irish legend states that the Nulesians went into Ireland some' 2500 years B. C. Queen Tea, the daughter-in-law of King Milesius, is said to have been

buried at T~ra. .

The word Apollo may come from the word Apelo 'or Apple. The Apple Grove is famous in 'Myth. Avalon was the island of the apple groves. Tennyson speaks ·of Avalon in his peom. the Passing of Arthur.

.' . i

"But now farewell, I am going a long way With these thou seest--

If indeed I go

To the island valley~of Avalon' (Havila of the Bible) Where falls not rain, nor hail, nor s?ow;.

Stories of the golden apples' are found in the Scandinavian as well as the Greek myth. The golden apples guarded by the Amazon-

ians maids were the orange groves of Atlas or the so-called apple orchards of Avalon. The southwestern lake district of Ireland is semitropical in o l.Lmabe , The Isle of Man, which lies between England and Ireland, has a temperature range of on Iy seventeen degrees.

The Faroe Islands have a bay named Gods-haven. The Baltio. sea has an island named Got-land. Quite recently remarkable finds have been reported at the latter place. The historical museum at Stockholm recently reconstructed a strange type of helmet from a piece of copper found in a peat bog on the island of Got-land. The name Got is a favorite prefix for surnames.

Today the Shetland Islands carry as high a type of people

as may be found anywhere. Their b160d dates back to the Bronze Age. The remains of Bronze Age villages have been uncovered there.

Contl':.::ry to nineteenth century historians, England was a highlydevoloped civilized country before the Roman occupation. London'was a thousand years old. There were good roads; good houses, horses, and cattle. Some of the mythical kings, such as Leur (Le the Harry) were the inspiration of Shakespeare's plays. Good horses seem always to have been a possession of Irclund.

:Engla11d and Ireland were in decay before the time of the Romans.. The poem of Thomas Moore shows the change:

liThe harp that once thru'Tara's halls The soul of music shed,

Now hangs as mute as Tara's walls

As if the soul were fled. II ,

"So sleeps the pride of former days, So glory's thrill is oter.

And hearts that once beat high for praise, Now feel the pulse no more. It

"No more to chiefs and ladies bright The harp of Tara swells;

The Chord alone that breaks at night, Its tale of ruin t·ells. II

The Voyage of Bran pictures the horses: uThere are at the western door

In the place where the sun goes down,

A stud of steeds with grey specked manes And another crimson brown.t1 .

Where· the winds of the north becalmed in sleep Their conch shells never blow."

An old Celtic oath is suggestive of the rise of the sea in

the time of the melting of the glaciers:

"I fear no man,

. Only the sea to fall; I fear no priesthood,':

Only the sea to rise Up@1I

OfFlahertyfs Sketch of. _!;he Island of Arran (west of Ireland) leads in the direotJ.on of other Irish Myth:

"The people of Arran fanoy at certain periods they see Hybrasail elevated far to the west in their watery horizon. This has been the universal tradition of the Irishwho.supposed a great part of Ireland had been swallowed up by the sea and thes:unken part often rose and was seen' hanging in the hOTizon."

-- (0 v Flaherty § )

This story fits well with the geology of the western isles of SC0tland which bears marks of prodigious earthquakes, as told by Plato in his story of the Island of Poseidon.

G. Griffin had said the same thing in verse:

"On the ocean that hollows the rock where you dwell, A shadowy land has appeared as they tell;'

Men thot it a region of sunshine and rest,

And they. called it Hybrasail the isle of the blest •

. -;,

"From year unto year on the Ocean's blue rim The beautiful spectre showed lovely and dim;

The golden clouds curtained the depths where it lay And it looked like an Eden far, far a-'Nay. rf

-- (Griffin.)·

Almost 'too preposterous is the legend of the Greeks of Orterios (Henry) and Mor-pheus coming from the island wi th the gates of horn, cannoting a celestial paradise with gates of pearl.

In the Odyssey, Homer describes the Palace of Alcinous on the Island of Scheria, It is much the same picture as that Plato gives'of the island of Poseidon. It was the ho~e of the Phae-

c Lan s , who were skill ed beyond a Ll. others in the driving of "swift ships. 'I He states the Phaecians originally came from Hyp er-La , Hyperia means beyond Eria. There was an early God. The surname Hyperides was held by a Greek orator. This name "Hyperidestl coincides with the Irish legend of the.Isles in the west, which were beyond Erin. Eris was the Greek goddess of Discord.

The living words of today are the best way of studying the remote past.

Temporal and di vine power- had been united in the governm.en ts of Mexico and Peru" The priesthood was Ul1iiJed to the emperor .. The empires had stood still too long. Before Mexico and Peru fell into the hands of Cortez and Pizarro decay'had so progresse~" that those empires resembled overripe fruit, ready to fall

at ~the first Slight disturbance. The conquests of those two empires were similar in most respects. The main impulse that urged the conquerors forward was gold.. The wealth of gold in the empires was fabulous; the gold offered Pizarro filled a

large room; more would have been added had not the flow been stopped.

The golden age of fable edges out into the light of reality in Mexico CLl1d Peru. But all that 'was left was the metal itself; the golden qualities that had existed in the infancy of the em-

pires had long gone beforsG '

In both instances the progress of the invaders was aided

by the fact that the people expected the white men to come again as gods. The legends of these countries tell that the original conquerors who came centuries before the time of the Spaniards Vlere bearded white men, who came in the ships from the north and that they were considered as gods. The white gods brought in a new way of living. Quexaquotal and 'Packacamac, , the respective gods, taught the people agriculture, weaving, and masonry.

In Peru the first civilizers took possession of an island in Lake Titicaca. This is indicative of an island culture.

'Today all Peruvians are ;hot 'colored. There remain some red haired whi te people with blue eyes.;',

The father of Tupac Amaru (the Emperor) possibly had more wives and concubines than Lad Solomon or David.

In the sacred book of southern MeXico, the Popul Vuh, there are many instances of parallelism between the cui ture of Old Mexico and of Old Egypt. Prescott states that the aristocracy of

ed music in a ',;,ory refined way; there was, however, a very sordid vestige of c ann.i.ba Id sm that remained as though the high breeding of the nobilit.y.had,been stained by the admixture of a baser influence. The gods of the Popul Vuh were it reasoning and. thinking people. As in Egypt, they resorted to inbreeding to keep their blood strain pure. Apparently that was unsuccessful.

, In Cusco, Peru, the ancient stonework remains today with the

mer-e or less crude ruble work of .th e later Spaniards superimposed.

The old work is random ashlar finely cut and very closely chiseled. It seems that the master masons laid out each 'stone with lines and set the laborer~ to work chiseling them to the linE3 with very hard tempered bronze tools. Very hard rock was

ea s i.l.y cut. 'All sizes of .s t on e were quar-r Led , The Lar-ge s t stone ever quarried lies near Be Lb eck in Asia.': The largest s t.on e quar+ ri ed in Peru approaches that stone in size. Mod er-n stonework looks shabby when placed beside or imposed upon the work of the Inca. It is well worth recalling that a parallel exists in the round towers of Ireland and the later stonework that was placed upon them.

Four highways led out of Cusco to the four parts of the Empire. The highways led out of Cnossus in Crete the same way. In Cusco there was a vast temple of the sun with golden decorations which was similar to the temple of Poseidon wht c n wa s a temple to the sun. The Myth of the Incas relates that their rulers came from the "Island of the Sun." (Poseidon.) The cult

of the sun was universal for the Els had circumnavigated the globe e Standing opposed to this c ul t of the sun was the much older and more savage cult of the serpent. In the Popul Vuh one speaker states "I am a snake, 11 which meant that he belonged to the serpent cult. The serpent on the cross was just as appropriate in South America as in Europe. Coins bearing the serpent on the cross have been found in Central America.

Then there was the cult of the Battle Ax. With the Inca as with the Cretans the Ax was the symbol of power. In Peru bronze, silver, and gold axes were used by the three classes of people. The gold ax was carried by the Inca. In Crete at the Palace of Minos the ax was carved on the sacrificial stone in

the sanctuary. (There was a sacrificial stone at Minos, Labyrinth at Cnossus the same as described to be at Poseidon.)

The falcon or eagle was used as a symbol of power in Peru that same as in Egypt. The falcon-headed man is chiseled on the'gate of Tiahuanaco in Peru; the falcon-headed man appears, too, in Egypt on the Tombs in Memphis.

Philological paleontologists have shown the similarity' of hundreds of words in the Inca language to the Aryan roots, either in Sanskrit, Greek, or ~~glish.

The anal drainage systems of the Inca were like those found at Cnossus, or like those spoken of to be in the Palace of Poseidon ..

The Aryan Inca developed the Llama, the lima bean, and the Indian corn.

The hieroglyphies of Mexico remain unde~iphered. The pyramids of Mexico resemble those of Egypt •

To get a picture of the ancient Peru one should read the Aryan Incas by Miles Poindexter, who was American Ambassador to Peru at one time. His picture of the people of Peru worshiping the dissevered head of Tupac Amaru (their emperor god) who was foully murdered by the Spaniards, can only be likened to the followers of Christ at his crucifixion ..

The late conquest of Ethiopia in some respeots parallels that conquest of Peru. Haile Selassie is but the vestigial remnant of a once glorious empire that in the time of Solomon came near to being a world empire.

THE GODS OF CRETE

"N ow whenthebl e ss ed gods had finished their toil and sottled by force their strugglo for honors with thcTltans, tpey :r:ressed farseoing Zeus to reign andvr-ul.e .ovc r thGID,by Earth's prompting. So he divided the'ir dignities among them." -- (Hesiod' sTheogoriy. )

From what has been found among the excavations at Cnossus in Crete there is considerable evidence that there was a race of gods and that Crete was one of their strongholds. Whatever

trac es of the gods that may be found on -t'he mainland of the continents is secured by uncovering the veil of a vast sacred organization. At Crete,however, there is evidence that it dropped the secrecy from many of its activities.

When the Cretans said that br~te was the home of the gods, the Greeks called them liars. There is record somewhere in

the Old Testament that'the Hittites thought the Cretans to be great liars. Diodorus, an important Roman Historian, wrote that "Many gods VI en t out of Crete. u When Minos and the Labyrinth, appeared in Greek Myth they were fictitious; but after the excavations at Cnossus it is now agreed that they are historical.

Minos was reputed to be the son of Zeus. Today up in the mountains in Crete along a rooky path, there may be found the throne chair of Zeus and the seats of his council where 'they

met to consider their matters of conquest. " ,

The labyrinth ruins are described by Sir Arthur Evans in his "Palace' of Minos~'tI The indications are that the culture that built the "Palace" was the samethatbuil t 'the Sanctuary

of Poseidon, and the same that settled in Egypt. The Labyrinth at Egypt/was larger but no finer." Refinements and details of the"Tindings at Crete are just as nice and- bear rnarkings, of 'just as great a civilization as those at Egypt. There is evfdenc e

of this"difference. The people in 'old Crete had more time for leisure and sports than those in Old Egypt. "That, is, there were more of the leisure (lee) class proportionately in Crete than there were in Egypt. Egypt appears as a vas~ horde of slaves and a few rulers. Crete 'appears as a civilization with a great'many.of the leisure class, or with a greater'proportion of distrib uted wealth. The working class lived in fine .houa es away from'the palace. Throngs of refined people attended ·the athletic contests. 'Paintings'indicatE:) that there were other races on the island, but they were not in the majority.

TIURTY THOUSA.ND GODS BEFORE JEHOVAl-I

The gods were long headed "diphlocephalicll people. (There was a considerable development of the Lower or little brain, the cerebellum.) This is the seat of artistic endeavor. The sloping forehead was an advantage over·the people of today, for the front part of the brain is the seat of worry and ambition. A recent report of Drs. Freeman' and VITa t ts of the George Washington University states that after operating and removing a portion of the fran t brain and improving the. c ondi tion of the pa tien t, they c onclude that the frontal brain has .mor e to do with emotional tone and amb'itd.on than with intelligence •. As a further digression may it be'~tated that sdmeanthropologists believe that the sloping foreheadxepresents the fully developed skull; while the perpendicular :f0rehead,of the ,baby-face. type represents '8. stunted development~ Irt'other words man of today is an infant; he is paedo-

morphic, which means that a child mq_y bear a child. Literally paedomorphi&means child change. With regard to insects it means for the larvae to lay eggs. In Ei dave in France the sloping forehead type of skulls were fOW1d beside the er ec t forehead type,of infants. The latter was supposed to develop into the former type; today we do not develop; we are s t.unt.ed ,

Today it takes twenty-five years to educate a child, and corporation considers him ur:fit to hire when he is forty-five. That is, twenty-five years 1'or preparation and twenty for ser-

vice.

Egyptian natives placed, boards, on the foreheads of their infants to make their skull slope. '

The gods placed belte about the waists of their children at infancy. Greek myth states that the nurse placed a belt of gold upon the waist of Apollo when he was an infant. In'the Cnpssus murals all the people of a certain class have belts, and their wai~ts are very slim.

Between Crete and Greece there are innumerable islandsthat were, peopled.with the god race. Here it was that Odysseus met a

. goddess Who prepared a meal for him. Here was the way for the gods to ,penetrate to Greece. In later days the greatest school of Sculpture, of Oratory, of Mathematics, lay upon the,islands. On one such island Octavius studied. as a youth. '

Near the city of Alexandria there was an ancient port for the ships that came from crete.. It.now lies six fathoms below the surface of the water; it was even. undiscovered when Alexander went to Egypt. The large quays were built to accommodate ships

T".tIIRTY TIWUSAND GODS BEFORE JE>-IOVAE

up to 300 tons.

War chests of Crete included rooms full of bronze arrow heads, sharpened like razors. Homer states that "Th e Acthiopians are split asunder, some to the -east, (in Asia) and some to the wes t

(in Africa). II He also states that the god Poseidon had gone to

Aethippia to collect tribute. Aethiopian soldiers are shown upon the walls ofCnossus. Here is indication of a penetration of

the Red Sea by the gods. (In the Old Testament'~is the reference of the· Canaanites coming from Oapthor (Crete) under the leader~ ship of a god.) Me1l1l11on, the handsome white god, with his wife, Oassiopea (The fort of Oasey) a goddess of the Oassi tribe, was given suzerainty over Ethiopia. It was he who came with a troop to aid Troy in the' TrOjan vlar.

Today the whi te blood of the Oretans shows, in the Ethiopians.

Haile Selassie is partly wh i t;e , His picture, in the papers, standing holding a highly ornamented shield harks directly back to the time of Zeus "VIho holds the Aegi s If( shi,eld). 'Bail e S el.a asi e did not lose his head as did the Emperor of Peru;. but in

many ways there is a parallel for the two empires and the two leaders. They both were rulers of a wasted and degenerate empire, Both belonged to the Brori2e Age of 2000 B. C.

Itis highly evident that Orete waa ron e of the "Isles' of the Gentiles" from which those came that "divided the lands" among themselves. From the Red·Sea they penetrated as far as Japan

and the Pacific Islands.

There is a quotation from Lucian, a ,Roman writer, that described conditions in the Atlantic ocea,n3000 years ago. '. The pic.t ur e drawn then willfi t the Pacific Ts~a:n~s of .todayr.

Born to the sea ~ on islands in '·the sea, the god rio more'feared the sea than the Arab fears the desert. Each was in his own element. The gods knew the ocean, (named from 0 Kean, an Irish name and probably means to kriow--Keen 0),. It was Atlas, the wizard, who upheld the world; and Poseidon the Earth Oircler who circles it.

Osiris was' canonized .by the people who worshiped him. He taught them the ways of agricultUre. He gave them Apis the

There can be but little doubt that Osiris came from Crete. -56-

We give another quotation from Diodorus to show the conn ec tion of this god to the gods of Crete:

That led an army thruout all the nations.

I am the eldest son of saturn

Another way of relating all these gods is by the meaning of their names and the place names of their countries.

The wor-d Zeus means "Ligh t or S un II

The wor-d Crete means llBelonging to the Sun.il

The word Osiris and the wor d Isis both mean "Sun. II

The word SGrgon (the first king in the Euphrates Valley) means "Sun."

Assyria (probably a formation of the word 0 siri s ) means "s un , It

The Persian word Cyrus means liS un , II

The word Dr (the home of Abraham) means "Sun. II

The word Baal means "Lord of the Sun. IT

The word Illium (Troy) means light of "Sun."

The word Helen and Llewellan both mean light or "Sun." Relios or Los (Sol) both mean "Sun."

Elohim was the surname of Jehovah. (Gods of Babylon~) The lights of the world.*

Such a list as the above should be convincing evidence that all the nations of the related districts were ruled by sun-worshipers or the gods who worshiped light.

These worshipers of light were the Elohim, the Ely, the

gods of the Old Testament. All six Pharaohs mentioned in the Bible b ear r t he subtitle, Son of the Sun. and two bear title of Amen, viz., Ra-messu-Mein Amen, and Shashang Mein Amen (Sh'i ahak ) , Such words as Daniel, Israel, Michael, Samuel, Driel, Elijah,

Greek culture begins with Homer who wrote the Iliad and the Odyssey. He lived about eight or nine hundred B. C. His writings were of supreme influence upon the Greeks who in turn influenced . the entire European World. Homer was supposed to have been blind, which was not uncommon for poets in Fabulous days~ The Bards who

were to devote their lives to remembering the legendary poetry were purposely blinded so that their memory would not be hampered by the sight of things.

The greatness of Homer's pootry implies that there was something that went before. There~ere legendary poets that predated Homer. Orpheus and Mus eaus were two of marked ability but there is pone of. their works extant.

Were our only access to the Roman world to be by the way of the Shakespearian Plays ,we. would still : know Caesar, .Arrt ony , and Brutus; yet we, should hesitate to count them anything but r i c - ti'cm. The whole Roman world might have been but the fabrication of the Shakespearian mind.. Thus the story of the Trojan War and all the "Olympian gods that live forelZerfl and'the "Phaecians

. who are of near kin to the gods" were and still partly are considered the fabrications of the mind of the blind poet Homer. After the ruins of TroY,the'way was opened up for a rational explanation of the wonderful fancies of the Epics.

~ The Hellenio DarkAgesobsoured the golden age of the

gods mentioned by Homer and Hesiod. The age of disorder which followed the disappearance of the'gods' affected the Greeks just as the Ohristian Dark Ages of the-days after Charlemagne affected Europe. Control of thg seas passed from the gods into the hands of pirates.. The port of Athens was called Pireus. Hundreds .of years later, Athens c~me out supreme, as England comes out today after the days of piracy of the Drakes arid the Morgans.

,

Troy was the civilized clty, the Greeks were the barbarians in ancient days. Troy was the'city of the gods. Apollo and Neptune riad worked upon the, wa'l.Ls of the famous city. Zeus was the supreme god of tho Gr·eeks. He came from Crete. He landed at Dodona, and established the Oracle. "No craft they knew, fith woven br,ick and jointed beam, tOPileth,e sunward porch; but in the dark earth bur-rewed and hous edvl.Lke sunless .ants in sunJess caves. r (Aeschylus,~':t;f.ometheus B.)

There is an expression among historians that denotes confusion'aboutthe source of·civilization. It is the phrase liThe lost origin of' the Aryans. II The hunt fades: out in the Euphrates Valley where as elsewhere they are supposed to, appear full-fledged as Minerva from the brow of Jove.

The earliest settlers of the Euphrates Valley that were civilized'were theSumerians,. "Sumerian" probably means.the great Eri, or the great of the sea.

There have been found lately the ruins of the earliest settlement by name Laga sh , (an L word)" The first Sumerian king was called Sargon, t.h e sun, or tlLord,of Plants'! or tfLord Digger' of the Earth 1.1 or "Lord of the Garden." Sar in pic tograph language was the picture of a garden" The word garden today carries the liar" syllable., Aryls meant garden in Irish.

Like Moloch, Sargon was a man represented as half fish, that is that he came froID the sea. As Osiris came from the Delta of the Nile, so Sargon came from the Delta of the Euphrates. Next after Lagash, 'Surner and ,Akkad were built.

In one of the latest books on Sumeria (TheSumerians, by

C. Leonard Wooley, 1938) the author states that the expiorations in Sumer disoover a olvilization dating baok to 4000 B. C.

In the form of society discovered there the king was either a divinity' or was presided· over by a very, anthropomorphic god who ruledth,e king. .Eac h city had its man god who dealt with the people only.iby proxy. which necessitated the lorig list Of

lower gods who acted as intermediaries for the people, ,He states that the sign for the upper class was "amelu."· The first wife of the god was generally the eldest daughter of the king. There were many other wives however. Sargon the Great' extended his sway over the entire part of Asia Minor.

In the sands of the Delta of the Euphrates there has been found gold and silver jeweled carvings and beaten work of greater refinem.ent than farther up the ri ver-, The gods and the upper class were Caucasian and not Semi tic. The words "Ali II and "Harri!! also appear in the king lists as "Shargalisharrilf a

king who reigned about 2600 B. C. Alulim and Alagar were kings who reigned before the flood. Sumulailu (undoubtedly the same as Samuel) was a King-God that reigned ahoz-t.Ly before the reign of the famous Hammurabi (1940 B. C. coincidentally just so far B. C. as we are now A. D.) In reading the code of Hammurabi, and familiarizing oneself with the social scheme of things in Babylon a close resem.blance between the gods of the Euphrates Delta and those of Genesis may be seen. In the very first and

Genesis 2:£ starts the description "there was not a man to till the ground.ll "But there went up a mist from the earth and watered the whole face of the ground.1t (The deserts formed during the Glacial Age were watered during the melting of the glaciers.

The city of Babylon had walls eighty feet high, about :a hundr.ed gates, and the river ran under the .wa l l s to furnish water. Hammarapi (Api) the great king had a great library in Babylon.

YGGDRASIL, THE WORLD ASH TREE

According to Norse and German legend Yggdrasil was the world ash tree that encircled the earth with branches allover the \florid and with roots in heaven where knowledge and wisdom were concealed by the w-ellof Mim€I' and the sacred fountain of Urd where the gods had their doomstead (place of justice).

The etymology of this word Yggdrasil explains this myth which coincides definitely with the theme of this book. ,Yggdr was a name for Odin and it meant thot: as and il have previously been shown to'mean both god and light. Ash also means light. Thus the that of the gods of light encircles the earth as a

tree of light with branohes or god empires established allover the world and with roots or origins in heaven the, home of the god::" wh er-e wisdom and knowledge existed as a sourc e or root.

'I'h u» Yggdrasil was the tree of knowledge which was forbidden to the occupants of the garden of Eden (Woden,Odin, Weden, Wednesday, Eden, Garden of Eden).

The tree was sacred in maps places,,' The Druids worshipped the tree and especially the nrl.stletoe .. "(The kiss under the mistletoe is a vestige of the feast of the Saturnalia and the worship of the tree.) There were many gardens and many gods with a central home or doomstead where judgment was_given to all the gods an¢i where they swore allegiance as mentioned in the story of the island of Poseidon"

Denmark was o:riginally called Gotland and the many iSlands in the Baltic presented a condition like that near Greece.

Odin had a hundred names according to the Eddas~Wotan in German is not' unlike Votan the god of'Gutamala 'in Amerioa. The' Asen gods gave names to many places in northern Europe. Ostend, Essen, Esthon-ia are some. 'Asasen was another name for Odin. Asis was the land of light, or the land of the r~sing sun.

The thirteen celestial gods of Asgard were the Aesir or the Osir. This is the same wor<l as found in Assyri'a and in Osiris. It carries the same meaning'in all instances.

Assyria was founded by Assur who came from Babylon; and Babylon Vlas settled from Lagaah, Lagash sarries the pictograph of a garden and no doubt is related to the garden of As or Ash. The Assyrians were a heavy bearded white people of Aryan stock and could not have been indigenous to the Euphrates valley. That they were a'seafaring' people· originally is shown by the fact that'Sargon, "Lord Digger of the Earth,'.' was pictured as half fish, like Moloch, and was also oalled lord of the seas.

Indeed such words as Aesir (Norse), Osir (Egyptian), Assyr' (Assyrian) or Asathor (Norse), Asthorth or Asthart (Phoenician),

Astara (Saxon), Easter (English), Esther (Spanish), are too widely spread over the earth to indicate an Asiatic origin.

The land of the Bybrasail, the mythical home of the Irish west

of Ireland is very suggestive of Yggdrasil. It is true the settlement of Lagash below Babylon was very ec_l.'!, about 3000

was to our conclusion a more d i.r ec t settlemen t _:'rom the west. Yggdrasil was nearer .the truth than the tree in the garden of Eden. There the sacrament was made avera small tree as shown by inscriptions.' In other words the tre~ot Eden was vestegial.

The tree that Abraham planted (Gen. XXI)" 'was the'Eshel (.literally the tree of god). The sacred t~eeo: the C~naanites that stood beside the altar was the Ashera (literally the tree of

Asgard, the G.erman Beaven

Asen was'the name of the family of. gods of Odin, Thor, Balder, Freda, and others. Their home·was Asgard or literally the garden of As. (Such names as Oswald, Oscar, and Osmond, are derived fromAs@) There was a race of people in early Italy named Oscan, and also a city at the sea coast near the present site of Rome called Ostia and founded at least 1500

Be C. '

The giants were a slothful dull older people than the gods. The gods built Asgard and drove the giants to Utgard

or "Beyond the Garden." This was very much like the Elohlm drove mankind from the Garden of Eden in Babylon. The King of Utgard was Utgardloki; 'There'was a river "Gioll" between Asgard and Utgard or between the gods and the ·giants.GriottunagarCir:was the rook boundary of the garden an¢l. was·the site of the figl;tt, between' Thor and the giant Brungnir.

Vvanen, who dwelt in VJanenheimor IVli t.gar d , The Mi tgard Serpent and the IvIi tgard Dragon ship indicate that the VJanen were the serpent gods, an earli'er organization than the ElyGods8verywhere. There was a war in heaven between the Asen gods and the 'Nanen gods. When peace was finally p.stablished hostages were exchanged to guarantee good faith. Thus we can see that the Asen gods conquered to some extent the giants and the snake gods. This coincides with the story of Hesiod who told of the gods warring the giants and of the final supremacy of the gods with the selection of Zeus to reign.

Warfare existed mainly on the basis of Single combat:

Armies were practically unknown. Many of the escapades of Thor were incursions into the giant land, the untillable mountains, the forests, and the glaciers.

Fricia's palace was named Fensal or Sea Hall, and NiodrTs Castle was Noa t.um or the Ships Harbor. Oegir was the sea god who lived far out in the sea. He often visited'the Asen and one is led to believe the Asen lived on Islands, in Halls, surra und ed by Gardens. The gardens wer-e wall ed and had large gates. This must have been the way of living throughout the entire European and Asiatic world for thousands of years during the age of the gods. Gold seems to occupy a fundamental place in the world of the gods0 Valhalla or Asgard was topped with gold. There was a golden age like that mentioned by Besiod.

The Roman writer Tacitus states 'that human sacrifices were brought to Thor by the Semnones, the oldest tribe of the Suebi. Thor also had living slaves given to him by devoted followers as tokens or sacrifices. They would correspond to the Levites given to the Lord by the Israelites. Of course Thor probably represented a line of gods the same as did the vmrd Jehovah.

Christianity pushed the religion of the Asen gods to Norway and Sweden. From there as the Christian religion moved in, a band of settlers moved to Iceland to have their freedom of worship unhampered by the religion of Rome. It was here that the Eddas were collected together and written down. They were already old at this time. These Saga or Sayings combined with the oral myth of the northern Europe are the source of

the information relative to the prehistoric gods. It is scanty indeed. The Greek and Roman material is one hundred times so plentiful« Enough exists however to show that the Nordic Gods were the same as the gods of' the Levant. The Gardens; Halls, warfare, altars, sacrifices, marriage and family life; were the same. Most of the stories are primitive exaggeration, yet the raw material could not have originated sui generis.. The savages of the north could not have invented the ci vilization of the halls and gardens of their own accord. The gods were agricultural p.i on.eer s seeking a foothold on the con tinen t , There was

Indara sailed up the Indus river' as far as Cashmir to build his palaces and celestial halls. Indara is a form of the Aryan word And-sri or Henr.y.The Mahas-Bratas were the High-Brits a word that is far reaching and descriptive in its import. Berith means covenant. Baal-Berith means lord of the covenant and the Britons were a race prone to make covenants. Hon. L. A. Waddell (ell) of London shows in'an almost indisputable manner that the

Babylon surrounded by high walls was indeed a garden in the strict sense of the word for it was large enough to hold agricultural grounds as well as houses. Into this garden the gods took the proletarians or "forerunners of the gods" on probation, to make "like us." The Serpent priest or satan warned them they would only be slaves.* (The Pharaoh of Egypt was called a Dragon, Ezekial 29:3, and the soldiers of the Pharaoh were called Dragons. Thus it may be easily seen why the children of Israel were prone to worship the Serpent, the emblem of the gods from whence they came.) Such conditions might be almost modern comparatively speaking, had the Pilgrim Fathers invited the Indians into their villages "To make men of them or to make them in their own image." Indian Snake doctors and priests might advise to the contrary.

Tkus man, unwilling to follow the advice of the gods, was suffered to go wi_thout the fruits of the garden.

There is the legend in Egypt that the Serpents robbed the gods of their immortality. In Babylonia the Legend of Napishum states that the Serpents stole the ambrosia from the gods and the,gods lost their immortality. In India the god Indara was supposed to have preserved the ambrosia from the Snakes. In the garden of Eden (Babylon) the gods (Eloihim) drove the Snakes (Adam and Eve and the Serpent) out of the garden. Legend'states that Saint Patrick drove the serpents out of Ireland, (possibly the passing of the Druids who were Snakes). There are no real snakes on many of the islands of the earth today. There is a universal pictograph of the serpent entwined about the cross. This symbnlizes the universal struggle between the two cults.

The worst (Dr perhaps the best) happened; the gods interbred with the snakes and lost their identity in the lands that they conquered. With the passing of the gods, universal decay set in.

THE GOD, JESUS CHRIST

There is a connection in the secret mysteries and rites of the Ancient World.

The oldest mystery is the story of OsiriS, son of saturn, brother and husband of Isis, father of Horus, and brother to Typhon. Typhon kills Osiris and Isis retrieves the body in dissevered parts and Osiris is proclaimed arisen from the dead. Zoroaster brought this mystery to Persia, Cadmus brought it to Greece', Orpheus brought it to Thrace, and Melampus brought it to Athens.

Similarly the mystery of Adonis was the funeral feast and his reported arrival the.following day alive. The Orphic Rites celebrated in secrecy at night the fUneral lamentations for a great person. After bewailing his death he is understood to

be restored or resurrected.

Baptism was one of the rites celebrated in the worship bf Eithras, the Persian God, who, by the way, was ascendant in Rome before the time of Augustus. The Orphic rites celebrated a holy trinity and the mysteries of'Samothrace taught the worship of the Holy Mother of the Gods, a future life, and eternal

punishment for the wicked. ..

, Dionysiusor Bacchus of Crete was said to have arisen from

the dead.

The Essenic customs are said to be like the customs follow,oed by the worshippers .of Orpheus, the pupil of Apollo, and togetherwith Muaa eus , a pot of the darkest' age of Greece. Christ and.J ohn the-Baptis_t were' said to have been Essenes.

_."~. :.

The Anc i en t Egyptian Book of the Dead and the' Modern Lodges of Masonry both observe a rite of resurreotion. A young man approaohing i"nitiation into'Masonry must profess his belief in God" such also was the r eqtri.r-enien tfor t4e young neophyte in seeking: entrance into the Eleusinian Mysteries.

Mystery is mentioned in the New Testament twenty-one times The word signifies mastership. Whatever the Master did in an~ cient times was a mystery. Tn Lend on in 1666 a paper men td.ons liThe, freemen ,of the mystery of Carpenters. If Above the mystery stood the miracle, the wonder of the gods.

among themsolves very often. SucL similarities and many others are mentioned in such researches'2s The Golden Bough. They bring one to the brink of wondering if, 2fter all, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ were not a "super collosalll miracle play, based on such secret rites as were given at Eleusis and samothrace, played on a grand and real scale in a large'city for the benefit of the secular public--or as Diodorus said, ';What v.a s done in secret, later was done openly.u If so, for chis c.rama Christ was prepared and s.chool ed from infancy ..

such a thesis leads to other evidence. At the time of Christ, Greece, Asia Minor, and Egypt, 'were prostrate before

the Roman barbarians. Sacrifices to the Divine'Julius and to Augustus wer€ made by the.1populace. The culture of Greece and Egypt would have had to seek cover.. The home of Apollo, Demeter, and Orpheus had been deseorated. Golden plunder was carried away to Rome ..

The Island of Patmos was not far from E1eusis and Samothrace, the hom.es of the. secret rites. It was on the Island of Patmos that Saint John saw Christ; pictured as an old man vvith whi te hair, garbed in wh i te , with a golden girdle .. ' (Rev. I.) This was about 90 A. D. If this were nota vision, Christ is presiding there at the head of a meeting of Elders. (II.) He held the place as a result of going through the ordeal of being crucified. In'Rev e III Christ speaks of iltheAmen," using the word as anolm.,calling them the "faithful and the true." Cannot this denote a,relat~onship. with the Amen of Egypt? The' Amen or Ammon were the secret rulers of the world, the same

who controlled Alexander and told him to found the city of Alexandria. They were in turn to control Roman Empire during the attempted world theocracy during the Middle Ages. In somewhat glorified terms John describes the twenty-four elders wearing crowns before Christ.

'The Greek word for· king is Ba,selius.Base'is the word for foot, bas s the word, for ,low, ,and bas means down, so surely baselimeans ·below the gods.' Thus the king was below the'gods. This furnishes the basis for the European King's claim for Divine Right in ruling.

Earlier .in Matthew 19 Ghrist,promised the faithful twelve rulership over. .a restored Israel. It would seem at first that the aim of the early Christian movement was to control Israel, but first aims are not always last accomplishments.

Christ's words upon the cross are enigmatical .. HEli, Eli why hast thou forsaken me?1I They ,seem to indicate the expec.:..

, ta tion of some one who was to help him down. 'He was, indeed, taken down by Joseph of Arimathea, a rich man, who only claims him after he was crucified, as if' that were his only cue. 'At

the same time there were displays of supernatural com.motion not. unlike the displays at the time of the murder of Julius Caesar

as told by Plutarch. As told by Matthew, Mark, and Luke,the veil of the Temple was rent. Someone has passed from the outside >througbto the holy of holies. Some person, for it would need

not be rent were it a spirit. Haliburton speaks of a tunnel that was supposed to lead from the Temple to the outside of the city. The Temple is gone now but there is some eivdence that there was a t.unn ef , If there was the High Priests knew it.

The Jews and the High Pries ts of the Jews did not ace ept Christ. Matthew 28, "This thing is commonly reported among the Jews to this day" that is "that his disciples came by night alidstole him away.lI -Later Ohrist's ascension took place in

a cloud. A spirit would need no cloud. It is reminded, Jehovah himself, moved in a cloud by day.

Christ's words, !lIn my fathers house are many mansions" might be taken literally. The word paradise means park in Persian, in Greek it is park of the gods"'-paradeisos, deis

meCiris god, the sa.r.:le as theos. The gods as we have said stayed in th~ sacred groves even in upper Silesia or in Southern Arabia. The word Elath (The El) means grove (it was the name

of the home of Jehovah and was located on an arm of the Red

Sea) and the word Elim means oak grove. The wonderful facades on the bluffs at the site called Petra, or perhaps Sela, south of the Dead Sea and on the border of Arabia deserve more attention. The place which is beyond description in grandeur is about two miles long and several hundred Yards wide. Facades of Temple en tranc es perhaps two hundred feet high and wonderfully carved face the enclosure. There are many of them. The whole area may only be approached from"a narrOlN passage a few feet vJide. The knowledge of its existenc e has been lost to the world for many years.

Bri tannica s t a tes "Petra was the home of a very early sanctuary of the Horites: That the name of the place was not known-that the style of the architecture is Nabataen at first but

later partly Greek and partly Egyptian. Strangely enough few inscriptions have been found in Petra. The most eminent find

was a rock hewn altar named the Highplac e consis ting of a plac e for killing victims and a shallow court perhaps intended to

hold water; the most complete Semetic sanctuary that is known.1I Further--"One part of the site was called Pharaohfs TreasurY,lI and also "that Christianity was at Petra very early." How could this place be built by wandering robbers--it must have been constructed from the continuous flow of weal th from the offerings

at the Temple in Jerusalem running for hundreds of years. Such

a place might well'have furnished the resting place for the intell ec tual recl us e, rich and safe and secl ud ed : it might well have been the Abode of the Gods.

But if it were it ceased to be when the Romans destroyed Jerusalem and plowed up the ground. The'Romans feared the Theocratic Organization, and well they might, for it would eventually conquer Rome. No other city in the world was so utterly destroyed as was Jerusalem. But the controlling men were safely hidden away from the Romans. The Papacy of Rome can be foreshadowed, The Illi theocracy went underground during the Roman ascendancy. For about three hundred years Christians were persecuted, churcheS

-74-

were held in secrecy. But when Constantine was converted, SU'Dposedly by a miracle in which he saw a vision in the sky, the Christian Chur-ch came out of hiding i:l.nd took open secular control in Rome •.. All the Oracles simultaneously ceased to speak:

Christ's words were fulfilled. Power had shifted to the control of the Emperor. The Pope took.: to himself the prerogative of crovming kings. At this point Christian Scientists claim that :the power of healing was lost to the Christians. As wor-Ld.Ly power was gained, spiritual power was lost.

Thus the organization of Ammon continued through to the

Christian Church of the Iv1iddle Ages. ..

Beyond the history of Masonry there is unwritten evidence that the'lodge is'the product of the religion of Bell or Baal. Scotland, England, Ireland show evidences:{)f the religion of Bell. Christianity and Masonry join up in' agreement on antidiluvian mythology, yet Masonry differs from Christianity in doing no proselytising, in doing nO,healing, in avoiding many emotional disturbancesco.mi:non to Ohristianity ..

Masonry acknowledges 'the Great Architect, makes morality

a skill and a training--not a miraculous conversion. Hiram of Tyre was a worshipper of Baal (HistorV'of Masonry) and knew not Jehovah. Hiram belonged to the Napthalia or the priests of the apron or linen. Hiramfs craftsmen built the temple for Solomon who had no craftsmene Solomon was practically converted to Baal for he admired the higher cult and Jessica introduced the worship of Ball to Jerusalem.. This JehovahwQuld not stand for he above all was a "jealousfl god .. Hence the line of Solomon was to be destroyed. As a matter·of fact Jehovah's' jealousy was the destruction and the dispersion of the Jews,

CHAPTER XX CONCLUSION

Religion of the historical and the prehistorical past lies deep-rooted in the present.

Where superstition and ignorance still survive, religion flourishes as an ancient times. Father Divine of New York styleshl-m.self god--the nearest approach the Twentieth Century, A. D. has to the Twentieth Century B. C. Prerevolutionary Moscow was called the city of churches. Four hundred churches with golden domes looked down on the, sl um-Li.k e dwellings of

the poor. This was a Nineteenth Century exhibitoon of the

religion existing on the superstition of the masses. Money

flowed in to the cnuroh es to furnish their golden domes but none of it ever seemed to pass out to benefit the poor.

During the Middle, Ages the Papacy struggled ,with the German Emperors to maintain world'supremacy. The Germans complained of the Ul tramontainism, the money that passed beyond the Alps to build the cathedrals of Rome and never to return.

The 'supremacy .wh i.ch the Papacy inherited from the time of Constantine was indeed the supremacy of the Amphictyonic League of Greece. _ 'I'he League of Amphictyon goes back to the time of Troy. Before the time of Troy the Pelasgi of Greece were settled by the Priests of Ammon. Priests directed more then than in the time of Marquette and La Salle •.

Direct evidence may never be found, but c i.r-cumstane es indicate that Julius Caesar's main busanessun Egypt was to secure the c on aent; of the Priests of, Ammon to· his world rulership. Caesar himself w~s a high priest according to Josephus. Vvhen the weakness of the organization became 'apparent Caesar's ambition mounted, ambition not to be king,'but to be god. Indeed in-the time of Augustus Caesar daily sacrifices were made by the p1asses to Octavius as a god. Unr~ke Alexander, JuliUs Caesar preempted the powers of Egypt and was direc,tly assassinated as a re,&ul t of a whispering campaign of the priesthood.' Egy.pt and Rome warred under Antony and Octavius and Rome won, but three hundred years later Constantine was won over to the other side. Such fluctuations of power had happened often.

The seclusion of the Popes at Avignon is another example.. The struggle: between the priests of Typhon and those of Osiris is

a third. Milton has dramatized this sublimated story in his ParadiseL·ost. Satan was the symbolized form for the Priests of Sat iri"'""'t1i6 temple of Sat in Egypt under Typhon.

All the Devils of Mil ton's story were the local gods mentioned elsewhere in this book. Existing side by side they sometimes maintained control by coalition, even as the we t and dry politicians of today sometimes swing their forces together* Exposure was impossible for they all w"re practicing the same

methods, and for one god to expose the methods of the oracles of the opposing god would be suicide for himself. Thus the Jews consulted the oracle of Beelzebub against the direction of'Jehovah, yet Jehovah would not expose the methods of Beelzebub,

lest Beelzebub expose Jehovah.

A disciple of one creed (such as Job) could be robbed indefinitely but he always remained faithful. (Do anything to him, but spare his life.)

Today con tin ui ty of organization exd st.s through the church of Rome, the Oracle of the Delphi, the Priests of Ammon, to the

House of Atlas on the island of Poseidon. But there is no continuity of personnel. In the days of Atlas therulership belonged to one race--an inbred race and hence a race that tended to sterility, the biological result ot: inbreeding.. Many of their leaders were either sterile or had only one son as had Ulysses.. Brother and sister mating were common. Caesar for lack of a son settled his estate upon Octavius.. Alexander died without issue. The slow decadence may, be seen in the European nobility of the last few centuries. Biologically an outbreeding was necessary; but even to the time of Marie Antonette o'f France the demarcation between nobility and plebian was supremely dis-

tinct. - .

Thus today, even though we outbreed, we bear marks of deterioration. We dwell upon the threshold of hysteria.. The mental troubles that harass the multi tude are brought about largely by the universal system of exploitation. When submerged r ac es are not available for expl.cd t.a td.on , the descendants

of the 111i exploit one another, andthereoy increase their men-

tal .a i.Lment.s , . .

Who knows but that possibly the happy days of ancient pastoral--Satlirn may' return in our own. machine age. In the days of Saturn exploitation was not felt. 'r;I:he fields were new and un - fallowed. Likewise exploitation wEis ndt felt in America when

the land was new. Conditions such as ic arne about in' 'Egypt" and India were the' result of the exploitation of the gods who in turn 'made no effort to, rationalize thesupersti tions of the masses. The gods were ·to bLame , All the beauties of the splendid Ghristian idealsoannotmake reoompensefor the damage done. 'Nor to-

day can the church explain away its neglect, its failure, its procrastination in the elimination of worldwide slums, the slums of the Troglodites. Indeed the belt of rural slums in Amerioa is sometimes otherwise termed the Bible belt'.

All cities have slums. Evidently slums are needed for a system of exploitation to sucoeed. A populace cannot be continually robbed-and not bepome pobr. Thus indeed the Bible may say: "The poor ye hav ewf t.h ye":always.I'Yes, indeed, the poor we have; unless the system be changed. And the church places emphasis upon the individual, who is. helpless, and forebears to

'mention the system.

the land, the gods owned the men. How much more profi tabl e

would be a herd of men than a herd of cattle, for men brat everything for the sacrifice? for how much more valuable is the possession of man's mind than the ownership of land. There

is also evidence too lengthy to quote in detail that, the gods

of the Jehovah strain proclaimed an equity'inthe Israelites

that required the gcd s of Egypt to ac qui.es e: to' a removal. And thus only certain lands were offered, and the Israelites pass-

ed over some lands almost as trespassers. '

Arc: The oldest name for a ship war Arc. The 'word has

a variety of meanings that would Lnd i ca t.« ~he invasion and conqU$ringofGree9<?p'y. way of the sea 'Vvith c.:.:hips. Archi is Chief:

Arche is beginning: Arc is guard: Arc is a bow: Arcanun is secret: Archon was the :c'h'ief' ruler: Arc::-~itect was the great technician: Monarch was the king.

Amphictyronic,Council appointed Phil':"ip of Macedon (330 B. C.) commander in Ch'l's! for their forc ec., (See chapter on

Alexander.) ,

Aristarcus (first snd pman ) , Born at Samos 280 B. C. An astro~omer who anticipated Copernicius in Heliocentric theory.

Aesculapius, the son of Apollo, was taught medicine by Cheiron and was able to restore the dead to life, for which he was killed by Zeus. His daughter Hygieia was the gdddessof hE9.lth. Greek physicians were the priests of Aesculapius.

Agricola, a Roman general, was forbidden by the Roman Government to invade Ireland (80 B. C.). (Was Ireland sacred to Rome the same as' was Egypt?) Britain was c on q'uered short-

ly before this time. t • '

Greek Culture appears to come into Greece"already differentiated: It came from the adjacent islands: Many if not most of the important talented Grecians were born and lived on Islands: Sapphowas born in Lesbos, Pythagorus in Samos, Peisandra in Rhodes, Herodotus tells of the largest temple of Hera on Samos, whose literary tradition is Singularly defec~ tive.

Oscan:: An ancient race in Italy.

Oss~an: Gallic legend places Ossian as·the son of Finn.

Finn-land has too many place names and too many names of their important citizens not to be related to the gods. Sibelius

the great Finnish composer: Kallia the President: Mickala and Kareli and Helsinki are examples. The name ,Finn is probably related to th€:same word in southern Ireland. The 1a tewar could sym,bolize .armod ern ve;rsion of the :war between the gods and the giants in whic'h the gods lost.

the specifications drawn'· up by Jehovah and given to Moses on' the mountain of the lord may have been a gigantic Leyden Jar, of gold leaf inside and outside and wood between.

'This Zodiac belongs to a period about 2500 years B.C. It has the twelve

signs the sarre as our zodi.ec of today. In the center of the circle at

the hub is the figure of the Jackal holding the Axe in his hand. This

God must be of .irrport ance holding the central pcsi tion of the Zodiac as

he does! The question arises did the Egyptians call him the Jackal? In nearby Persia he was called Shagal, both syllables of which rreanGod. In

the Egyptian painting of the Judgrrent of the Soul the Jackal's head is

placed over me balance, to ju:ige, and the Hebrew coin the Shekel origin-

the Egyptian prcmmciation was like the Persian. The Arabian word Sheik,

Since John was the word for God in Greek, and Jack the sane rreariing in Greek or Egyptian, they Here the
